my first group ride

so I am in the of moving apartments, I’m by boxes and it’s been a stressful couple of weeks. night while having a with some friends I that today I was going to a few more boxes to the new place, and if the stays nice, I’ll put a few on my bike.

then my friend ‘you know, I’m a group ride tomorrow, you join us’.

I thought why not. I wanted to get out on my and if I’m in a group it’s a bit plus I don’t have to about planning a route and lost.

so my friend and I ride 45 miles to the meeting point morning, join about 50 bikers and head off on some roads, highways, byways and occasional stops for gas and lunch in total 170 miles.

now, worth pointing out here the sum total of my riding experience is 350 miles. including the 170 done

In hindsight maybe I shouldn’t joined such an experienced and if I’m honest, I would say the was a little fast for me. I would preferred to go a little slower on the bits (fine for people on bikes, not so great for people on and I touched pegs at least on the corners). I was nervous about the guys up, felt pressured to up and had to apologise to the sweeper a couple of

He was very understanding and simply I am the sweeper, I am here to make nobody gets lost, behind or injured. You go at your own and I will look out for you.

It was though, that despite his I was doing fine, I didn’t to be holding anyone up. pressure I was on myself really, and that me nervous and I think my riding My comfort zones were adrenaline either helped or and my body feels pretty up now that I’m home.

Overall I would say I very enjoyed the ride, some people, some stunning but I think I need to get more with my bike and riding in before I do another one like I feel as though I’ve quite a bit today though.

finally, if anyone here has as a sweeper on a ride like I would like to thank you on of anyone who feels like me, we were ruining your by being at the back and slowing you I’m sure there are like me, and you’ve made feel safe and able to the freedom of being a biker. Thanks
