How do you call a ride with two cyclists?
I mean if there're 3-4-5 riders, you can call it a small group ride.

Translated from my mother language it would be "pair ride", but I've never heard or read it before.

Don't think there is an expression in English.

I just say "Me and my buddy went for a ride".

How about just, simply, a bike ride.

It may start out as a bike ride, but as soon as there is a decent hill or a town line sign it will become a race.

True, but at least the worst you could finish is second place.

It's not something I've ever thought about, but yes there is no direct term in English.
French - Duo.
Threesome - different kind of ride...lol.
English - Went out for a ride with my mate....buddy.....geezer.....team mate. We don't have a term for it really. :noidea:

Depends who you're riding with? My best training buddy has now got heavily into shooting (that's the posh English variety, involving tweeds and blasting various creatures out of the sky). When fit he'd always rip my legs off, not surprisingly I was faster back then too. Worth if for the days when I was strongest .

Different training partner 20 years ago when I lived in London, but it was the same story.

If you haven't already done so, read Jean Bobet's memoir Tomorrow we ride. There some beautiful evocative and touching writing about rides with his brother.

In UK time trials that involve riders setting off in pairs, we say 'two-up'. But that term is usually only used in the context of competition.

Hey,
We also use the term. " two up" when truck driving in pairs.
E.g. 2 drivers, 1 truck.
