Toronto Noob Seeks a Ride Buddy or Two ...
I'm a relative newbie to this road cycling thing, currently into my second season of "serious" riding and my first real road bike. I'm relatively comfortable in traffic, not a terrible bike handler, and in OK shape. Hills, no surprise still kick my ass, but even that is getting better. Oh, and I'm a girl. What I really need is a person (or persons) to go riding with from time to time to learn new routes, and to help with my confidence. Whenever I meet another rider on the road and join up for a while, I discover that my confidence goes up tremendously ... I also usually get to learn a new route to ride.
I'm in the Bloor / Dufferin area, and can ride any day of the week. Early mornings are not my forte, but other than that my schedule is pretty flexible. Rides of up to 50km should be fine, and cruising speeds 20 - 25km would be comfortable.
I am aware of TBN and the Lap-Dogs club, and will look into those more group oriented options as well.
Drop me a PM if you'd be interested in a ride sometime. Thanks.
