5 Types of Cyclists You'll Find at the Tour of the Fireflies

1. The Lone Rider.  The Tour is basically a Critical Mass Ride - it is an extended and wider in scope CMR that took months to prepare.  Being a CMR, it is a group ride that celebrates the bicycle as an important mode of non-motorized transportation shared by lots of people.  However, not everyone is a member of an organized bike group or association and thus you could see some bikers who came alone and not as part of a larger group.  There is nothing wrong with this of course and we are just making an observation.  Being a lone rider doesn't mean you will be enjoying the Tour less than those who came in groups. It could even be advantageous to some as being alone means you're not being encumbered by other bikers who are slower or faster than you.  It means you can bike at your own pace and enjoy the ride better, observe and free to mingle with other riders, without worrying or caring about companions you leave behind or who go much ahead of you. But being alone also means nobody is there looking out for you (except of course our valiant Marshals who make sure that every rider is safe and that no one is left behind.) A lone rider is well, alone and has no one to share stories with along the way.  But lone riders should not worry about this.  Just find yourself a Marshal to befriend and you will be taken cared of until the finish line.
