Thanks. I had already seen that site, but there isn't much racing related stuff there. Maybe it is because there aren't any races on the schedule this time of year. I have been on group rides with the BBC in the past. They have a busy ride schedule, but from what I see on the web page nothing much in the way of a race schedule. Am I missing something?
FWIW: It looks like the Chesapeake Wheelmen might be a good source of info on local racing. They maintain a calendar that seems to cover the area races pretty well.
It isn't clear to me what events might be suitable for a 55 year old rider who has only been back to riding somewhat seriously since August. I am hoping to start out with some time trials and branch out from there. I imagine that right now I would probably finish a distant last in most events. On my best day I do a fairly hilly 25 mile solo ride east of Loch Raven at 17.1 mph. Some days I am a good bit slower.
I have some fairly major surgey in a little over a week, but hope to be doing some mileage on the weekends and weekday roller work soon after. I hope that by Spring I will have lost another 15 or 20 pounds and be at a better fitness level.
