Why Cycle in a Group?

Cyclists often start cycling with short, friendly rides but soon after, find themselves planning rides in the Himalayas or rides of many hundred kilometres together. It is their fellow riders who motivate them, hydrate them, and support them with a sweep vehicle when they test their limits.

It also adds to one’s social life where you start waking at 5am to meet your friends for breakfast rides, instead of 9pm for drinks! There is a whole different camaraderie in a cycling group.
