Just got back from a “short” ride with my brother. 36Miles at 12.6 mph. Given that my brother is not a cyclist this was not bad but he is now complaining that I should not have ridden up the hill while reading the map while he was puffing and panting.
I'm never sure about how to deal with riding with “non cyclists”, obviously you don't want them put off but riding along side them clearly not finding it hard when they are puffing and panting could be even more annoying than just getting to the top and waiting. Then there is the question of when is it right to give them a push? Even asking if they want a push could be seen as an insult.
