Race in Miami

I just started to ride and my average is around 16 17 mph, any body that lives around Miami that know of any rides around the city on the weekend that are around that level or maybe a little bit more hard core, please let me know...

theres a ride that leaves casa larios in sunset place on saturdays around 7 am. you should be able to hang with that group. the ride is 60-65 miles round trip. Aso sign up on for the mailing list here http://www.elitecycling.net/ they have a ride one saturday a month that isn't very hard but is good group riding experience and about 40 miles round trip. pm me with any more questions.

these aren't races though, just group rides.

Somewhat on-topic: are there any USAC races in the Keys, or in Key West for that matter?

T and Th, a ride leaves at 6 AM from Johnny rockets in Coconut Grove. It is supposedly a tempo ride, but the last stretch always turns into a hammerfest. Another ride at 6:30 AM on W and F from the intersection of Sunet Dr and Red road (57th ave) in South Miami. Usually race pace. Both of these rides are big groups, on narrow streets, in traffic so they are not for the feint of heart.

speaking of which, I haven't seen you there in a while. And the tempo ride happens if you survive the hammerfest in the beginning! Now that it's warming up these guys are getting abusive, it averaged 25 mph for the first lap today, heck of a tempo ride.
