Re: Group rides - input needed

You ask good questions and I have been following many other forums on this same topic and they have the same questions.  The 1 minute spacing seems to be the most talked about as long as the group can keep a consistent pace.   The folks on GCN tried to address this on their YouTube channel:


I am still sequestered in Michigan since my brothers passing, taking care of Mom, so best to everyone coming up with a plan.  I plan on being back on the bike and zwift in April.

Subject: [BBC-Bike] Group rides - input needed


I’m looking to start a discussion on group rides.

Cancel completely?

How do you maintain proper social distancing when you are breathing the exhaust of the rider in front of you?  

What is a safe distance?

Groups of 4 riders at a time?

What are the pro’s doing? Other clubs?

Organize time trials with a 1 minute spacing?

Cross winds vs. head or tail winds?
