    My riding buddy for the past two years was first my Tinder date, then my boyfriend, and now my fiance. He is a much better rider than I am and when we first met I was worried that he wouldn’t want to spend time on the bike with me because I was too slow. My concerns were unjust however as he has spent the past two years encouraging me and coaching me into the much better rider that I am today. Very lucky to have him :).

    Also, a good buddy is a buddy with who you can share a silence for a while without feeling uncomfortable.

    I think number 4 should be a minimum standard for anyone on a bunch or group ride. If you tag along for a bunchie and someone needs a tube or food or whatever, it doesn’t matter if you even know them, just pay it forward.

    Also, if you’re late, be funny.

    I can’t see the photo or is it a selfie with a white elephant in a snow storm or is that a joke I didn’t get?

  • Charlotte Durand

    LOVE THIS! Selfie skills are essential- and also not just asking you to take photos of them hahaha

    They look after their bike! Nothing worse than someone with an unsafe bike or constant mechanical issues that can be prevented easily.
