Cycling: Solo or Group Rides?

How do you prefer to cycle? I like solo. I find having people around is to much. If there not as serious as you are there talking instead of breathing and it causes issues. I cycle to get away form everything.

I prefer group but see advantages to solo. We have a small group 4-5 and it can be slow going sometimes and hard to get everyone focused.

Mountain biking with a group. Road bike solo.

No real preference; both have their goods & bads -- the main thing is, I'm RIDING!

Mainly a lone wolf right now, may start going with groups next season.

Both. Like the differences between the two.

Today's my solo day. Bye.

I usually ride alone because it's easier to just grab your bike and hit the trail as opposed to organizing a group ride. I like to do both though.

Solo because I have no choice. I commute and there's nobody on my path.
