Soul06 I'm headed out to Vermont Friday morning for a 3 day trip.....alone. Gonna be great to get up in the morning and get out on the road to the resorts I'm hitting up without anyone holding me up when I'm ready to go in the morning

Liampac70 you will be fine just ride in bounds. regardless if its weekday or not if you had a bad fall it wouldnt be more than 5 minutes or so before someone came through and saw you. I like It better alone a lot more. I dont have to wait for people or worry about others getting hurt.

wrathfuldeity Got the itch...ru going to drive around looking for $5 handy?

Been riding with the same crew for 5-6 years most every Sat...which is fine but its nice to mix it up, meet new folks either for a tour or try new things and not afraid to split off. If I got room, pick up folks hitchin...and it very rare to end up driving up or down with only myself. Just ride with in your limits and know where ur going.

Noted! Thanks.

Well, I live in San Francisco. The ~6-7hour round trip (probably long since the way back would be peak rush hour) is not all that appealing to me if I'm by myself...

midnightcaper Just go ride. I'm always alone up there it's how I get better I find people that look way more advanced than me and try to ride within my limits stay up with them. If they dust me oh well if I can hang just means I'm getting better.
