Question For The Expert Riders.

Recommended Posts

I've been riding for a year now and there are quite a few riders around my area.

However, they have all been riding for a long time and when we go for group rides, I'm the guy doing the smallest things. I also happen to be the youngest guy in my area (18)

Although I do enjoy riding with much better people, I'm not sure what they think about me.

Heres the question for the old/expert guys:

Do you like/dislike riding with beginners?

Quit worrying, i was always pretty shit and rode with a lot of very good riders - as long as you're good company and can have a laugh, i can guarantee none of them will care how good a rider you are.

It does you good too, you progress a lot faster when you ride with people who are better than you.

haha im a bad rider and have rode with some very very good riders and in all honesty i dont care what other people say aslong as you have a good time ridng, and also it is very benificial to ride with others that are better as they can help you with your ridng.

I ride with Stan and Ali all the time, and they're both a lot better than me but it just helps me progress faster by seeing what's do-able and what isn't. Most 'better' riders seem to not really mind having newer riders around, as everyone has to start somewhere. If you're not getting in the way by accident all the time or anything like that then you shouldn't have anything to worry about - if the people you're riding with are giving you grief because you're not as good as them, tell 'em to do one.

Your 18.... and at that age you can banter with anyone older than you really, I think the main problem is when riders from 13 and under, ride with older riders, because they're just not on the same social level (obviously there will be some exceptions though)
