I must confess I didn't understand a word of it
Well I understood it,,,,, but like Ventodue, I object slightly to being preached at, whether it's how to ride, what to ride, or what to wear while riding.
I often ride in a small group, and IMHO it only works well if you have faith in the other riders. You need to be confident in their riding style and know that they're not going to do something unpredictable.
As for improving your own riding?
I really don't believe there's any substitute for miles under the wheels.
I think you need to be as relaxed sitting on the bike as you are sitting in your arm chair, and the only way to achieve that is to sit on the bike, a lot.
Just my 2penarth, other opinions are available.
It's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than ride a fast bike slow,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
