Today I took part on the CTC Saturday cycle for the first time. Total distance including getting to and from the start and finish was 51 miles.
As I raced to the meeting point of the Commonwealth Pool, I found the first part of the ride slow. Later on, especially with the head wind I found the pace of the group to be about right. I’m not able to sustain a high speed over a long enough distance to be able to move up to the next level of the road club.
