Reasons To Ride Alone | Aostirmotor E-Bike
Cycling is a group sport, but you'd be surprised how many people prefer to ride alone. A friend said, "One of the reasons I ride a bike is to be alone. For an introvert, that's freedom."
In fact, the reason they ride alone is simple:
Better Ride Planning
If you have a well-thought-out riding plan for yourself, riding with other people can disrupt your plan because they may train slightly differently than you. So if you want to train, cycling alone may be the better option, unless you can find someone who does exactly the same thing as your training program.
Always Keep a Clear Head
Cycling on the trails alone is a great way to keep your head up. Although the team riding is very exciting, it is inevitable that there will be riders who like to chat. Problems can easily arise if you are distracted.
Never Worry About Being Abandoned
It was really frustrating to be left behind when I was riding with my friends. If it's just you, then you can adjust the speed and ride according to your ability, and even if you can't ride, you can choose to take a taxi home.
Set yourself a small goal, and when you reach the pinnacle of your goal, you'll feel a sense of accomplishment like never before.
No stress when riding solo. You can choose your own pace. If you want, feel free to take part in a freestyle race of bikes you come across at random on the road. If you race and win, you can congratulate yourself. If you play and lose, no one judges you. Aside from the pressure to not play, there is also no pressure to stick together, which can put pressure on you to make some silly mistakes, aggressive riding moves, or turn on the "very amber" lights.
Stop At Any Time
yes, you can actually stop for a photo, view, go to the toilet, or have another coffee without being blamed by your friends for slowing down the herd. There's also no need to wait for one person in your group to use the toilet, pay for their latte via American Express, smoke a cigarette, or fix their "classic" bike.
Explore Other Paths
Groups have set routes and arrival times, but solo rides allow you to explore trails, take a different route from your normal route, or even hit a dead end just to see what's out there. And no one will mind! There is no fixed agenda. You can change your mind, destination and route as you please without causing anyone grief or upset. You can also take a portable power station with you and do single e-bike camping anywhere you like.
There are also friends who say, "Great questions and thinking. I think I want to ride with someone most of the time, but I'm fine and crave alone time and again. Either way is a personal experience for me. Such a great treatment, I love both.
