Looking for a group training ride. I'm just getting into bike racing after a vacation from sports (school / family / work for about 12 years). Work in Providence, live up towards Worcester, so anything in that corridor would work. Looking for something that would push the pace a bit....I'm comfortable at 19 mph on my solo rides...and did a bunch of group training rides when I lived in California...

That i'm not sure.. i have only followed their routes a bunch of times.. i was kinda intermixed with them last weekend but not actually with the group.. there seemed to be folks at all levels so i bet you'd find people to ride with.
NBWM are ag reat group. Every week there are several routes.. 15 25 and 50
you ride according to your personal preference and ability.. someone will be there with you no matter what your level.. 15 yo Cat racers on Parellos, Dad's with Trek 1.2 towing kids. Grandmas on townies.

Check out sevenhillswheelmen.org also, they do 3 or 4 rides a week. I have yet to go out with them so I am not sure what their pace is like.
