I had an intuitive flash a few days ago, and after several days of ponderance I've thought of a new plan to assist learner riders to gain as much riding skill as possible before taking the licence. I've noticed that those after who get their licence believe that they are 'well equipped' and yet have not taken the time to push themselves in cornering. I believe a good way of gaining skill is to ride with others, and assess each other's skills, discuss and encourage ways of improving them. Ride days are great, and they are fun way of gaining experience but limited in feedback due to the number of people involved during the ride. Also ride days 'usually' take several days to organise and get the word around. So I propose a new system what I call Micro-group and Micro-rides. What Micro-group are groups of about 2-6 riders who are agree to help on another to build their roadcraft. Micro-rides are organised very quickly, within a few days, with the help of mobile sms messaging and in-forum messaging. Micro-groups are organised by suburbian regions (eg, the members of one micro-group are within the SE region). This allows each member to get familiarity with rides in their area. Also it simplifies meeting up with each other. Micro-groups also allow to build closer friendships between each other with the common goal of becoming better in roadcraft. And I believe they can also encourage some form of identity, such as a group name. What do you guys think?
