Beautiful day out on bike. We decided to have a casual ride with plenty stops along the way. One of guys celebrated his 50th, so we all had fun. It was good to see the Pure Savage group on their second lap. E-Bikes I'm not sure if it was a good idea to start them off in the last batch. They just come past at such a speed. I saw many "fun riders" becoming annoyed with the way in which the e-bikers were passing the groups. You get use to the speed of your follow cyclists around you, then all of sudden a "motorbike" comes passed. It rattled many people. Another issue was people getting towed up the climbs by e-bikes. #fail Second Lap I don't understand the necessity to race the second lap. Your second lap should used to help struggling riders, or pass on advice. Same issue as the E-Bikers. The speed difference is vast. Again the slower riders pannick and accidents happen. The guys and gilrs from Pure Savage, in my opinion did it the correctly. Bike Setup It's shocking with the many "fun riders" bike setup's. Either the saddles were either sky high or the person was sitting on his crossbar. I saw so many people on newer bikes, but the frame sizes were totally incorrect. The LBS are selling people the wrong size bikes just to clear stock off their floor. Clothing Shame there should be a Cyclists IQ Test. The clothing choices during the day is worring. I saw so many people wearing arm warmers, leg warmers, gilets and shoe covers. Yes I do know that some religions have to cover up their bodies. But these were none of those. The Expo bargin hunters. I saw the same at the 94,7 last year. People don't take time out to see what the race weather conditions will be the next day. They just wear anything or everything. Too much clothing and the body over heats and this leads to higher fluid loses. Then it's the events fault that they can't complete the event.
