I live in a small town 50 miles south of San Jose, CA. We have one bike shop which has a few rides/week with a small turnout. The nearest club is based in San Jose, although there are some decent-sized towns within 30 minutes.
Anyone had success using some form of social media or some other means to find like-minded folks to ride with? I've either got to find fit older folks or out of shape youngsters. My distant past experience with relatively serious running tells me the best way to improve is the push yourself with a group and while I have no problem doing 40-50 mile solo rides, a once-a-week group ride would be a nice change.
