My First Club Ride….

Yesterday I plucked up the courage to go out on a club ride with the main SWNC, it was a 44 mile ride to Thornham.

Luckily for me the group split into 2 with a fast and slower speed.

I coped with the hills better this time and managed to just about stay with the group on the way there…

Coffee break was at Thornham Deli a place I have never been to before but can now highly recommend, the cakes were amazing….

On the way back I struggled to stay with the group, who I think had rocket fuel in their coffee, there was also a head wind making it tough going but luckily someone stayed and looked after me making sure I got back ok.

As you can see my avg speed was 14.1 a good improvement on the the 11.9 which it was On the Hunstanton beginners ride but a fair way to go to match the others at 15.7 ……

As I rode too and from the start of the ride at Castle Rising my total miles for the day was around 52, after laying on the kitchen floor and dying for a few moments I soon recovered 🙂

A tough but fun enjoyable ride, I cannot wait to go again and amazingly I was home by 2pm

    Amazing! well done a truly great ride and a really good pace for a beginner, remember that, you are only just starting! I started doing 10 & 25 mile time trials when I was 16 or so, must dig out my Clowne Wheelers junior rider cup it was for 25 miles in something like in 1hr 15min

    Your top speed was 28.4mi/hr.. amazing!

    I went for a ride last week, about 4 miles and was wrecked. my top speed was about 10mi/hr and my *underparts* were BURNING! lol

    Well done, Sally! I am so glad you are now addicted too! And what an improvement too.
    Our club always choose a route on Sunday that goes out into the wind and comes back with the wind behind. It is definitely a better way to ride – homebound headwinds are horrible.
