Firstly hello :)
Sorry if this is a long one :)
My name is Ryan and i'm 35.
I've been riding on and off for quite a few years now (although last year i was lazy )and have been a lone cyclist. I have tried some groups and club but these have either fallen into the usual "testosterone" filled rides which don't interest me or they have a long cafe stop which again doesn't float my boat, for several reasons.
I'm ideally trying to find a club/group who just enjoy riding together on regular runs at a modest to decent pace. I usually average around 26kph over a 2-3 hour ride but am not able to "ride on the rivet" for long periods.
Reading many of the posts on here you may be a viable club to try, but i do have a few questions if you don't mind :)
On you sunday runs do you have set routes that you use or is it where the wind takes you as it were or at the very least is a distance for the days route known before the start?
Do you have cafe stops on your sunday rides? I ask as I cool down really quickly and just cannot get upto speed and also cramp after a break longer than say 10/15 minutes.
Do you ever do off road routes say on cylcocross bikes or is it strictly roadies only?
Anyway i hope you don't mind me asking the above and look forward to any replies.
