Okay... so I joined the Food Park ride out of Irvine two weeks ago. They split into two group after a few miles and I jumped in the wrong group. I was dropped on the first climb. Last week I went the "easier" route and just managed to hang after everyone regrouped. Newport Coast climb separated a few groups and I finished with the slower guys.
So here's my question. Who has ridden with all of local groups and how would you rate them for difficulty? I would like to join a group that is faster than me so I can improve but it's won't help if I get dropped in the first 15 minutes.
Is Como St. Sunday faster than Food Park Saturday? I was told not to try to ride with the Tuesday Market Ride until I can stay with the Thursday group.
So is there a logically progression to this list?
Here is a link to a lot of training rides. Can anyone rate them?
