Dangers of Mass Cycling

I like Mass Cycling events for the opportunity to meet friends, old and new. As a gathering of similar interest cyclists there is lots to talk about. However i am not a fan of cycling in a mass cycling event. I find it to be nerve wrecking actually with my trigger fingers permanently on standby to squeeze the brakes.

You are so alert of the cyclists surrounding you that you no longer notice or enjoy the scenery around you. So for someone who enjoys wide open space when bike touring i find mass cycling claustrophobic.

That’s why i guess the last sweeper of any mass cycling event knows me by name 🙂
