Faced a big fear today and rode in a group line for the first time.

Faced a big fear today and rode in a group line for the first time.

There were four of us and we each took the lead for 30 seconds at a time. I learned that you never want to hit the brake while riding in a line (or have the person behind you come crashing in to you), you should only be in the aero position if you’re in the lead, and you need to be really, really close to the person in front of you to reap the benefits of their draft. I was antsy and nervous through the whole process, but was proud I was facing my fear of riding in a line. It really wasn’t that bad and the constant change of lead to back kept the ride interesting. I was even proud of myself for keeping up with the line as long as I could (we increased 1 mph every minute) and was okay when I had to drop. I gave it my all and pushed as long as I could.
