Finding Group Rides?(3 posts)

Finding Group Rides?Bosephus
Apr 5, 2001 5:01 AM
How does an advanced intermediate rider (good skills, but needs to get in shape) find group rides? I'm in the SE Michigan area (Ann Arbor). I thought about going into my LBS and just asking them, but they tend to be a bunch of young, cocky, pricks when it comes to stuff like that.

I'm looking for a group of fun people to ride with that might challenge me a bit, but I don't want to be too serious about it and I definitely don't want to ride with a bunch of guys that think they're the next Lance Armstrong (at least in their own mind).

Any ideas?

Is that the only LBS ibn your area? Although clubs are the logical place to go, there are several LBS in my area that sponsor group rides at least once a week and some several times a week. Check some of the others out, if there are any others.
