To get to the point, there are more posers in this club than serious cyclists. If you are a serious cyclist and desire to go fast in order to get a full workout and to take a little risk, you will offend the ride leaders. In the worst case, they will conspire to prevent you from ridding. I just got a call from Peter Walker and he said that he and the leaders won't let me ride with them tomorrow. However, I rode with them on the last Saturday's Century (different ride leader last week). This club stinks and sucks badly. They can't take a little criticism. Your worthiness as a cyclist isn't measured by your cycling ability but your ability to suck up and to follow their rules.

www.nycc.com is teh site address for New York Copy Club... could you please list the correct address?
I am just getting back into biking and I live in NYC near the Park. I would like some organization to just help me get back into it, and would like to meet fellow bikers.

They do have nice slow rides though. As long as you don't try to show off your climbing ability and to pass the leader, you wouldn't get scolded. Some new members got scolded by the C or B ride leader during a hill climb and they quited the club.

The original poster's name is probably Victor Chan and if you talk to anybody in the club who's ever ridden with him they will have some rather interesting comments. You can read some of his postings on the website's message board.

The club's website should have a self-test you could take by timing yourself on a number of laps around Central Park. This way, you can judge which rides would be to your suiting. And if you're just too darn fast like our original poster, you can always join Century Road Club Association.

Try http://www.5bbc.org/ Don't know what to recommend you if you desire to train hard and fast. I am looking for another bike club to ride with too. Try to speak to your local bike club about their own rides.
