Without too many words but tons of applause, we want to congratulate this years 2013 Champions: Carol Quade and Brian Marsh. Pedal on and enjoy the ride!
A good paceline is smooth.
The rider in the advancing line should NEVER surge. Don’t accelerate when it’s your turn.
Ride to the front and float to the back in a constant rotation..
Communicate – use hand signals. “Elbow wave” when coming off the front. Give a flick of your elbow to let the rider behind you know you are pulling off and for him/her to take the lead position.
