I agree that this is not an ideal solution. No solution is perfect. That said....

Another potential solution is to send people out in groups of 2 or 3, like a TTT. That could be a compromise. It's a tough balance.

Personally, I am trying to set a good example and have done ONLY solo rides for the past 2 months. But I see plenty of group riders out there. You gotta do what feels right to you.

That said, I stand by my posting above that it's too soon to have organized group/club rides. That's my story and I am sticking to it.
