Looking for group to ride with in Ithaca NY

I'm looking for a group to ride with in the Ithaca NY area. I typically ride a Surly LHT or Motobecane Fantom CX and my average speed is usually in the 11-13mph range depending on how far I ride and whom I ride with. I just completed my first century (well, 112 miles for the day - Ithaca to Elmira to Owego to Richford to Ithaca) and averaged 10.9mph on that ride.

I've only been riding again since summer 2009 (it had been about 14 or 15 years since I'd been on a bike).

I'm 37 years old if that matters and I'm in okay shape (though the years of beers have certainly tried to hinder that). I'd like to improve my speed and endurance and drop a few pounds, but I'd be happy to just find groups of people who ride regularly even if it's only 10-20 miles at a time.

If anyone is interested in allowing a newish rider to join their group, I'd be grateful. Feel free to drop me a PM or share this with someone that you think may find it relevant. Thanks for reading!

You might want to join Finger Lakes Cycling Club. There are rides on Thursday & Sunday along with maps of various routes and a list that you can read and post to.

Thanks for the heads up. I checked them out before, but thought they were a bit too experienced for me. Looking this year, I might be able to keep up on some of those rides.
