Having listened to the board's advise and wisdom, I decided to try my first group ride being heretofore a solo rider. Showed up yesterday eve at the LBS to join seven other riders for a relatively short 22 mile loop. Turned out to be a fun experience as I made no overt mistakes and took a regular pull at the front pacing 25/26 mph. Drafting really does make a difference. Totally surprising myself (and the others), I would have never guessed I could hang at that pace. Thanks to the board for instilling the confidence!
yeah, well, just remember -- you can't to that on a MTB. nmbill
