Hello people, Went out for a thirty something miler on Sunday night with two others and one of them said... "I've been watching the Tour De France and I reckon we should ride as a team. Stick closer together. Take it in turns to be in front and when the person at the front is tired the one at the back can come round and take over, help us pick the pace up" The other person and I looked at each other and thought 'yeah, right, maybe if we were as fit as you'. We gave it a go at times, though when Sean and I went to the front it was usually to slow the faster one down rather than pick the pace up. Still, we had a good ride, but the question remains... Is cycling in a peloton a worthwhile thing to do? Does it work if you are only going on average 13 - 15 mph on hybrids? And how close do we need to be to each other - very close? Tried it again this morning - stuck close to others - though we only did 16 miles. We're doing Coast and Castles over three days in mid-september and hoping the wind won't be too bad... Any thoughts?
