    Providence / Worcester group rides

    Looking for a group training ride. I'm just getting into bike racing after a vacation from sports (school / family / work for about 12 years). Work in Providence, live up towards Worcester, so anything in that corridor would work. Looking for something that would push the pace a bit....I'm comfortable at 19 mph on my solo rides...and did a bunch of group training rides when I lived in California...

    Any suggestions?

    That i'm not sure.. i have only followed their routes a bunch of times.. i was kinda intermixed with them last weekend but not actually with the group.. there seemed to be folks at all levels so i bet you'd find people to ride with.

    Check out sevenhillswheelmen.org also, they do 3 or 4 rides a week. I have yet to go out with them so I am not sure what their pace is like.
