What kind of pace do you guys ride at and what distance generally?

I'm up for getting to some meets this summer but I've not even got my bike finished yet, let alone done any training. Have a feeling I'd be way too unfit!

We are doing a ride from outside of Henley on Thames on the 18th. Distance will be about 20 mioles and the pace will be ratcheted back to suit all comers. The route has been revised slightly to be a bit shorter and to gain height gently.

Well I don't know about you soft southerners but us northerners ride 50lb 1930's Schwinns on 120 mile routes with 4500ft elevation gain. We are only allowed to stop when we need to get another packet of fags out of our rucksacks. Anyone who stops gets kicked until they get back on.
Bloody southern puffs :roll:

It doesnt matter, group ride + dog = not a good idea.

Very well behaved, depends on pace though, I mean if everyones hooning about on mad donwhill runs then it's a bad idea. However not sure I'd risk it... but then I don't ride without him so maybe I'll come say hi in the car park :D
