Well I decided to get back into cycling. Picked up a new road bike and trainer, since I waited till December to do this, My biggest problem is I don't know where to ride?!? Hopefully some of you guys can help.

Welcome to road riding.
What road bike do you ride?

Welcome, I live in Northbrook and there are usually club group rides that go around here. Just do a google search for the La Grange cycling club and there should be a spot to meet for club rides.

What time, day, pace, and distances on those club rides?

I'm in school right now. The club rides here at Purdue are usually 15-50miles depending on the day. Rides are usually no drop unless otherwise stated. Pace is 12mph on easy days and can go up to 20+
I'm sure the La Grange club rides are similar.
