newbie from Brooklyn, NY

Greetings,

First season on a road bike. Mostly doing laps in Prospect Park, doing laps in Central Park, riding the East River bridges and a few rides up 9w to Nyack and beyond.

Thinking of trying some cat 5 races in Prospect Park. Wondering what a good solo average would be before I give it a shot. I've clocked 18.8 on 8 laps and consistently 19.8 on 4-5 laps.

Any tips on NYC racing and how to get into it in a responsible way much appreciated.

Best!

Lots of NYC members here. You should look up a fellow member who goes by the name Pgoat here in the forums. He rides in the Park.

Also, PatentCad races in the city quite a bit and is a regular on the Nyack rides.
