I love riding my bicycle. (DUH who on here dosen't?) I've been without a bike for a few weeks while it's getting repaired and it's given me way too much time to think and do other things. My wife on the other hand loves having dinner cooked, house cleaned, yard cut, garage is spotless, so on and so on.
I took up cycling for health and fun. I'm not near where I need/want to be. I've always rode alone for fear of riding with others because I don't want to slow them up. I don't want to look weak because I can't make that hill climb without getting off and walking it (we don't have many in the lowcountry). All the usual stuff...
I really want to start riding with other people when I get my bike back but it seems like the only groups of cyclist I see or find are all road bikers. I don't own a road bike I won't own one for a good amount of time due to weight issues. (400 lbs on a road bike is just asking for trouble.)
Anyone have any suggestions? I've tried to get family/friends/co workers into it but no one is really into as much as I am.
