I am a re-transplant from Atlanta, where there are weekday rides every day of the week (except Friday), all such rides starting at 6:30PM (give or take bit). I can't find much similar here in Dallas.
There is a drinking club with a bicycle problem like my old group in Georgia, but they ride a 3:00PM ! Even if I can make it in the afternoon I really don't want to start drinking at 5PM.
When I'm working up into shape I prefer to 2-3 20 mile rides during the week, longer on weekends. What are my options here?
P.S. 15-18 MPH average (faster when I lose some weight). I'm in the Vickery Place area - you know, the M streets. It's a straight shot to White Rock Lake, but that can get old after a while.
