Today, I went on my first group ride with some bike club members. I had met one of the members on my commute in the morning. No, they weren't commuting, but they did invite me to one of their rides, and they told me they would have some newbies riding too...Well, that was right down my alley.
We did about 20 to 30 miles.. It was pretty chilly, but no wind..They all were on late model bikes. I was on my Litespeed. I didn't get dropped. They were going through a lot of mountian roads.. With hills and tight curves..I made sure I had the rear and when I had some momentum and wanted to keep it, I hollered that I was coming by..
Anyway, that was a treat, at 71, I was riding with peeps in their 30 and maybe 40s..
I told them to hit me up any time they are taking rides with beginners riding.. Don't want to ride with the pros as of yet...
