I really do like most of your vids.. I'm not as young as y'all, but I do like me a spirited ride. I see that that particular group was good sized; as in 20+ riders? I used to dig big group rides, but....

Not to preach or tell anyone anything they don't already know, but PLEASE take care when passing a member of your ride especially when the front rider quickly decreases speed and/or sits up. Front rider, like when on a track, warn the rider behind you with your LEFT hand up. Communicate out there, it might save someone's life. At those/these speeds, it is waaay too easy to rear-end another rider. Major catastrophe. I've seen it happen first hand. It's not pretty. No one wants to tell a ridin buddies significant other that their sweetheart has been in a major accident on their "fun ride day".

Certainly a much bigger ride than expected. A fast and slow group would help. Also helps when we safety talk ahead of time about hand signals and respecting space. We have not used a hand signal for that in the past. But have always considered it important on the track. Its a good tip. Maybe you are thinking push while the rider in front of you is thinking slow up for a wheelie, or wants to ease off of the pace.
