There is a local race coming us soon and I don't know if I should place myself in the 35+ category and do the 48-mile race or should I do the Cat 5 24-mile race?
I'm a decent cyclist at 37 years old and have been able to keep with the fastest riders on all the group rides. But I know that Road Racing is way different and can be much faster that I know.
I am thinking that the 48-miler may be a bit tamer because of the experience in the group and because it's twice as long... but this may be one of those "don't kid yourself" things.
Which one should I do?
