Lately I've decided to do a few solo rides. I was always told it's better to ride in a group because it helps gauge you against other riders. Sometimes when I ride with a group I get frustrated if the group rides at a faster pace and I'm the one who lags behind, on the other hand when I'm with a group who rides slower that happens to be the day that I'm ready to push hard and never go fast enough to warm up. In that case I think of it as a casual ride and just talk alittle more while riding. Even though I prefer to ride in a group or with a friend or 2, solo rides offer alot of advantages in terms of training. Solo or group?
