I do a lot of solo stuff, but I do sign up for charity rides to keep riding around bigger groups of people.
I have one this week, http://www.kiwanishouston.org/. It is somewhat close to my house (less than a hour away), so I figured why not. It is a good way to see roads I have never been on before.
Next week I have Novemberfest Metric Century that starts in Brookshire. I signed up for the Century ride. Hopefully the hard rides I have been doing lately will shine through on that ride, making it easier. I'm crossing my fingers.
You guys have any charity rides that you never miss that are good ones to attend?
I love Bike Through the Forest and the Hills over in Coldspring. The hills are fun and everyone seems friendly and rather laid back. Of course, that is if you don't line up in the first group out (do a stagger start for safety). They push hard right out of the hole. hahaha
