Well I did my first Sunday Social Ride with the Colorado Springs Cycling Club and LOL, they kicked my butt big time. It was only a 20 mile ride but with LOTS of hills, after 15 months of mostly riding "Rail Trails" and city streets this ride really beat up my knees. I usually volunteer for Sweep Rider, the last rider in the group, good thing as except for one rider, (of course and older guy on a STEEL framed 80's MTB like mine!), was the ONLY rider I could even keep up with!! It's gona take several rides before I'm able to actually stay up with the main group!
Infact, I even bailed out of the ride a bit early so I could be SURE to make it home! Since we don't own a car, I can't call the wife and have her come get me!! Still it was FUN to get to ride with other's, I've been a lone wolf for the last 15 months. :) The biggest problem I have is that everyone else has a "IRON BLADDER", I seem to need a potty stop about twice as often as the other rides, ARRUGH!! :( LOL, all I can hope for is that it get's easier with more group riding time! Have a most excellent day and stay WARM!
