My boyfriend is the only person I know with a bike. In fact he bought just so he could ride the Tour de Pink with me, but due to scheduling conflicts we haven't had much chance to ride together so that's why I'm interested in a bike group.
The first bike group I tried recommended that new riders come on the first Saturday of the month so that's what I did, but they didn't really have anything built in for beginners (riding 13-15 mph). Luckily that day, a couple from the group had to cut their ride early that day so they rode with me the whole 30 miles. It was a grueling ride. August in Houston is no fun.
The next group I'm trying has several speed levels and I talked to one of the members who is also in my spin class and he assured me that there were several people riding in the slow group. Only thing is that their ride is 40 miles. Of course if I start now 40 miles will be much more agreeable in the Spring than 30 miles in August.
