I haven’t walked “47 miles of barbed wire”, but I can wail that question with some of the tension George Thorogood explodes in his classic song, Who do you love?.
The people we ride with are often a reflection of how we see the world.
Are all your rides hard core, all business?
Do you ride with some folks because you share more than a need to ride with someone?
Some rides leave the flatted rider behind, others stop. It largely depends on the agenda of the group and our own personal agendas.
There are rides we all love because the terrain is great and the company is better. There are others where the personalities clash and we avoid them. Fortunately, most of us live in places where it’s easy to find a ride and group we connect with on many levels.
Who do you love?
