A thing of Beauty...
A group of riders that's perfectly in sync is a beautiful thing to behold. It doesn't have to be a high-speed chaingang or slickly executed ballet of through and off. It could be wordless gestures warning of potholes or parked cars that ripple from rider to rider (shouts saved for sudden, less obvious hazards). Simply riding two abreast at tempo without any half-wheeling or overlapping can, itself, be poetry in motion.
