Sunday morning I was invited to ride with some of the customers I have at the bike shop I work part time at. I said what the heck as I was going to go or a ride anyway. I showed up and immediately new I was in trouble. At 65 I was the most "senior" person present. The ride started off easy enough at about a 16mph pace. This soon increased to 18mph. From there it only got worse. We hit some hills and I watched the group pull away form me. At the top of the hills the group waited for me. Some jokes were passed around as I caught my breath. We then took off again and the pace climbed into the 20mph range. I was barely hanging on to the tail end. More hill were next and I was dropped again. After about 50 miles of this "fun" we got back to the ride start. needles to say I was whipped. Next time some tri guys ask me to ride with them I think I will decline.
