Well I did it, I went on the club orientation ride and I had a good time. So much so I filled out the online app and joined the club when I got home. It was very well run and run at an easy pace with no pressure. We all eventually settled into mini groups according to our skill levels. I fell into the mid-pack group right where I thought I would be. I do have a lot to learn about riding in packs of people but overall did pretty well and held my own. Overall it was a great experience and I am looking forward to doing more rides with the group.
