    Newbie here: Need some to find resources on training and group rides

    Can I find out where I can find resources for training and group rides?


    Ive been cycling to work with my Specialized Tarmac a year ago and I just did my first TT at Santiago Time Trial (34mins). Yes I sucked but I did enjoy it. My goal is to hit under 30mins at Nov. hopefully.

    Thanks

    Several clubs to consider depending on your level of cycling and your intent:

    Social clubs - BCI and OCRR
    Racing clubs: Santiago, Velosport and actually tons of others
    Both: OCW/Paramount

    I have ridden with BCI, OCRR, Santiago and OCW. All great clubs to explore.

    Me too! I think OCW is a great club, I do most of their Saturday Centuries. Sign up HERE! We start from “The Square” (formerly Foodpark) in Irvine almost every Saturday.

    My intent is to hit a better time at santiago trials at Oct/Nov. Maybe under 30 mins if im being realistic.

    Ive been gym bound for a while and I just started cycling to work and back a 14months ago.

    Plus I was too nervous this past weekend I couldnt calm myself down ! (172 Avg HR during that course)
