Tip of the Day: Feed off each other
Each one of us have our own strengths. So when it comes to riding out on the trail with buddies, be open to how your friends interpret or ride sections of trail. This is a great form of teamwork. You may show them how to get through one section and they can help you get through the next.
So be open to ideas and help each other improve. You will not only become a better rider, you will also enjoy the rides more by forming a tighter relationship with your friends.
