Beginner Cyclist Training for RAGBRAI-Los Angeles

Hi Everyone,

I am new to cycling and looking for a beginner's group or class where I can get some advice on proper technique, etc-in the Los Angeles area. I am training for RAGBRAI in July and have started riding, but would love to get together with a group of beginning cyclists or an experienced group who welcome beginners. Does anyone know of any groups/classes or just a couple people I could ride with? I live in Pasadena but I am willing to go anywhere in the LA area. Thank you in advance.

I'm up in the San Luis Obispo area so I can't give you any tips on a group or class in your area. But I have ridden the RAGBRAI. What do you want to know?

I think you'd really like riding and learning with the San Fernando Valley Bicycle Club.
It's like riding a bicycle
