It’s highly recommended that you ride with people who have equal skills and endurance. But as long as your buddies don’t mind, if some people want to push hard, your guide will advise you where it’s safe to sprint ahead to the next stopping point.
Your guide will always stay with the slowest person in the group. If you’re waiting longer than 10 minutes at the next rest stop, turn around and rejoin the rest of us at the back! Do that a few times, and you probably won’t be sprinting up the hills anymore.
If you miss a turn or stopping point or leave your guide behind, you may find yourself alone in the great outdoors. So pay attention!
