Best Practices for Riding in a Group
Group bike rides are a great way to socialize, whether you are meandering or have a destination in mind. Chatting with a friend along the way is easy, but communicating with the group requires an understanding of group biking norms.
Both verbal and nonverbal communication should be used to avoid crashes with other riders, safely cross intersections, and share the road with motorists.
Bicycles Times has some helpful tips for riding in a group. However, I don't agree with the "save the chit-chat for tea time" statement.
