Today I went out with my buddy & a group of 8 people including me. It was a small group but I call it my first group ride. We had 4 gals & 4 guys, but two of them are really good riders but Tim said he doesn't get to ride like that often & was having as much fun as we were.
He would ride up the hill, then turn around & go back to the last rider & ride with them up to the top.
I had a blast even though we did two "BIG" hill climbs over Horsetooth Lake & Carter Lake. I was very happy for how well I was able to keep up, I learned what it is like being able to draft & how to ride side by side when possible & ride single file.
We ended up going 50 miles in three & a half hours with a few stops. I was disappointed with my max speed of 38.8 because I thought I was going a lot faster on some of the down hills.
Tim said I was doing well & that I shouldn't have any trouble with my century in June.
