I'm organising a small ride this weekend into the Dandy's. The team is going to be a mixture of all riding abilities, plus different levels of experience in riding in packs. This will be the first time we've all ridden together. The most experienced at all of the above who knows his way around the roads a bit will be the Ride Leader. I've got the slowest bike but can go a bit when I need to, so I'll be the tail. If you can offer any wisdom about these events or point me to previous threads that can help with planning and execution, I'd be pleased to hear it. This may also be an opportunity to discuss etiquette and expectations amongst the participants. If anybody has been on a ride and would like to offer their advise or opinions please feel free. Thanks in advance, Scheff.
