Why Ride with the 5BBC ?

Six years ago I got into cycling.  I would normally ride by myself, or maybe with a friend.  I loved the freedom that cycling brought, and the exploration that it allowed.  Some of the rides that I continue to lead today, The Dead Pool and Ramblersville, were the result of these early rides.  When I first found out about the 5BBC - my initial reaction was NO.  I do not like group rides.  I am a lone wolf.  But, I did try it - and immediately discovered that riding in groups was indeed enjoyable.  Here is what I learned.
