There were about 14 of us, and it was early in the season, so I was hoping that the group would be going easy. My biggest concern was that I wouldn't be able to keep up. As it turned out, I had nothing to worry about. A bit of nerves around not not screwing things up.
But the real revelation as what what it was like to ride in a group.
Usually I'm riding with 2 or 3 other guys, and generally without much organization around pulling. But rolling along at in a big double paceline at 35 km/hr was amazing.
It was such a buzz my brain was floating in endorphins for the rest of the day.
|Lots of this stuff.|
Zoo ride again today, with perfect weather: sunny, cool, just a little wind. Awesome.
