Riding is an activity that keeps an individual alive. It keeps a person active and avoids a rider to act as a couch potato. Riding can be enjoyed solo as well as in a group. A coin has two sides; the same way riding solo has its pros as well as the cons. But it doesn’t de-motivate a solo rider to carry out a journey of his desire.
BforBiker would like to open up few perks of solo rider that will change your perspective for solo riding.
Riding solo gives one freedom to ride in a desired and laid back a pace. It gives the freedom to a rider to ride according to his favorite time and allows him to choose any part of the day for the ride. The rider feels a sense of liberty and is not bound to any boundaries while riding alone. This gives him room for exploring various other activities or options while riding.
A solo rider must ensure that he is in a proper and comfortable riding gear. A helmet covering the whole face is one of the most vital parts of the riding gear, along with the proper riding gloves and a riding armor as well.
Liberal management of time
A solo rider has the liberty to move according to his scheduled timing. Though bikers have a confined time and destination frame in their mind, due to some circumstances it can be molded accordingly by a solo rider. The same cannot be done with ease along with the group riding. If a solo rider wishes to halt the journey before or after the framed time span he can do that accordingly. The same activity cannot be performed while riding with a group.
A solo rider can bring the changes into his plan with ease and even at the eleventh hour too. Weather conditions, bike breakdown, or even personal sickness of the rider may hamper his journey. This may bring about some changes in the arrangements of a solo rider which can be handled and looked after easily. It is one of the biggest advantages of solo riding. A solo rider can explore various other routes and few unexplored destinations while on his ride. He can take a halt very easily at these destinations and explore them too.
New routes and ways to choose from
A solo biker has the freedom to choose the route to the destination as per his preference. He can choose the route with full of twists and turns, or the one with better scenic views, or the shortest one that may reduce the journey time of the biker and make him reach to his destination as soon as possible. A solo biker has the freedom to choose the route as per the preferable weather conditions or route conditions. One may like to ride long to spend more time with their machine or a rider may opt for a route that will make him reach his destination in the least time and allow him to enjoy more locations nearby the destination.
Ample time for clicking
A rider can be a writer to pen down his experiences, as well as a photographer to capture his experiences and memories. Solo riding gives the opportunity to a rider to capture his beautiful memories and experiences in the form of pictures. A mesmerizing valley or an eye catchy scenic view, an alluring waterfall, or an adorable animal can make you hold your journey for a while and capture it to cherish its memories ahead.
When a rider rides alone he has the freedom to take a break or halt the journey whenever he wishes or feels too. He may take a break to let the bike cool down for a while or the rider may himself need a break to relax him from the long and tiring journey.
The breakpoints can also be taken if the rider wishes to explore something out of the destination. May it be passing by a charming and shiny beach, or passing by a valley of flowers, it can also be a visit to a trendy café of the locality or a small popular food joint. These small, but memorable spots can be easily approached by a solo rider.
