Me, too. And that's what I would have always suggested, getting plugged into a club with some experienced people and riding as much as you can with them.
But this whole Strava phenomenon has really changed the group ride dynamics where I live. It's really insane. Instead of those good, long, steady rides so essential to getting in the miles and getting to know everyone, every hill is a KOM and dropped riders are left to their own.
Any one else notice this? It seems really hard to find just a good, steady ride that doesn't turn into a race at every point.
