looking for a shop ride in virginia beach/norfolk, va

headed to the area for a week. Spending time in Sandbridge and Willoughby (Norfolk). Anyone familiar with the Conte's and FatFrogBikes shop rides? I am a fairly fast rider for a non-racer but the 25-30mph avg for their morning rides (as listed on their websites) seems a little high.

Anyone have experience with these rides? I ride with the A-group riders and Cat 3 racers yet an average ride rarely exceeds a 22mph average over 50 miles (with stop lights and about 1000' of climbing. Sure the rolling speed on the flats is anywhere around 25-27mph but the average is 22 when you factor in the stops and climbs.

any other rides out that way besides these two?

Try East Coast Bicycles in Ocean View and Ghent. The OV store runs group rides on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6PM.
