I’ve been in a few groups rides lately, and on more than half of them the messages during the ride were just the ride leader admonishing everyone to group up. Sometimes just the way the ride leader treats the group causes folks to … go right through the fence.
I propose that a new fence type, the “Recycle” fence, be implemented where if one hits the fence ahead of the ride leader, one finds themselves transported immediately a fence-distance TO THE BACK of the ride leader. They could ride through the group, hit the fence, and pop to the back of the line again. And again. Everyone could be happy. The ride leader will have people remaining between the “back fence” distance and the front fence. Riders who want to ride fast can do so. People could ride as fast as they’d like, but remain with the group.
