Sure riding in a group makes you go faster and there are definitely days I miss the hum of tires and chains particular to riding in a peloton. A solo ride gives you a moment (or a couple of hours) to meditate. I do haunt the same roads over and over. There’s a reason – no cars and beautiful country side or tree filled canyons.
Today the countryside was kind and my shadow was the only company I needed. The canyon wind was unforgiving and riding up my shadow was a useless partner.
