Survived 1st Club Ride

I think I'm really going to enjoy being in a cycling club. It was great riding in a group. Fortunately they offered a rookie ride and this was their last one for the summer. It was a casual 12 mile with an optional 4 miles extra that I decided to ride. What a great time!!!

I enjoy riding solo just fine, but I greatly enjoy the weekly club rides. There is nothing like riding with others to help push you along. Enjoy!

Yeah, I really enjoyed having someone to talk to. Ive done charity rides but they are mostly a group of solo riders. I definitely pushd myself a tad harder than normal because I didn't want to look bad in the group. It was a great experience overall and will continue to attend their open rides.
