What if I need to pick up the pace and the ride is too slow?

If you're in a hurry and don't want to regroup with the back of the pack, that's fine, just say so and continue on. (Communication is key.) Folks often make other plans on Saturday afternoons and need to get back. That's understandable. You are under no obligation to stay with the group. However, if you're waiting at a regrouping point for slower riders, please don't huff and puff, roll your eyes, and look at your watch when the slower riders catch up. That's just not necessary.
