The club that I ride with on Tuesday is fast – super fast…at least for amateurs. I’ve been trying for two years to keep up with the lead pack to no avail, though I’ve come close a few times.
The best way to describe the ride is that it’s an “everybody gets dropped” ride. They start racing at about the 18 mile mark, attacking up hills, down hills, on the flats… The ride gets insane in a hurry. My biggest problem area is a couple of hilly sections that I always have a tough time with. That section is the bane of my existence.
That said, I saw a video a few weeks that has contributed more to my ability to keep up than any one lesson since I’ve started riding. Without further ado, enjoy:
