    Cycling in groups is not just about the motivation to push the pedal but much more for the fun of it especially when your group is closely-knit. And, of course, it is safer to ride in groups since criminals are intimidated unlike when you are riding alone. The picture below was taken yesterday in the main road of our town that is leading to the famed city of Antipolo where the roads are steep and curvy. It is the favorite of cyclists.

    Yeah. Antipolo is a good spot for cycling. When I go to Antipolo before I can see lots of cyclists. Also there are really beautiful views there. Cycling with friends and family is a good way to bond and to improve health. It is also best to travel together if you're not familiar with the area.

    You are right as the joy that we can derive from cycling in groups is one that is going to be difficult to handle. I have seen cases where it is never easy to find a group of riders, but once seen, it is always fun to ride with them.

    Wow! This shows that people that are living in that part of world enjoys cycling. In my area, we are just a few that are into cycling and finding a suitable time to go for group riding is always a difficult one.

    I prefer riding in groups too, but only when I personally know the people I'm riding with. It's more fun and you can plan out your route and what you're planning to pass through when riding.

    You're right, group rides intimidate the criminals. Sad to say, this is the reason why it's hard to use your bike alone, there're so many incidence of stolen bike in our country and most of them looks like a carnap they will steal your bike while you still using it.
