This Bike Pic Thursday, as temps start to rise for the weekend, are you planning on taking in the Fat Tire Loppet this weekend.

Bike Pic Feb 07, what is a collective noun for biking together?

In today’s bike pic, this fair weather Tuesday, we look at the best noun to describe those who like to ride their bicycles together for touring and in races. If you see a  group of goats, they are called a herd, a group of zebras is known as a dazzle, and a group of bears is considered a sloth. So, what do you call a group of cyclists riding together?

According to The Small Hall, “if a group of bicycles has riders, then the obvious answer is a peloton. Or you could adopt the Italian term grupetto to name them collectively, but these terms really belong to the grand tours.”

So, get into the zone when continuing your time outdoors and your #NextBikeAdventure. View all the great ideas and bike destinations in the latest Iowa or Minnesota Bike/Hike Guide. Then plan your next outing with family and friends in one of Minnesota’s HaveFunBiking destinations. And now, check out more stories at Let’s Do MN.
