Group Rides 101 from ROK BMW
Finding, Leading or Joining a Group Ride. Especially scroll down to "Group Rider Responsibilities" section. Good stuff from fellow ROK clubbers.
Your ideal group ride situation occurs on an 80 degree day with lots of sunshine, no traffic, wide, smooth roads, a small group of 8 riders or less, with all riders on similar bikes and having the same riding skills. All the riders know the route and the group has a "sweeper" rider at the back of the group with a communications link to the leader of the ride. If this is a reflection of your group rides, you must be living right. The odds of this happening are like winning the lottery.
Even if you've been riding for years, group riding isn't automatically in your wheelhouse, so it’s wise to study up on how best to approach group riding.
