    Did my first ever club run on Sunday, 50 mile. I managed to stay the course although i think they took it a little easier than usual for me as im a beginner.

    Anyway, i cant wait for next Sunday now and i might even do a club 10.

    Wish i had done this years ago.

    Virtual pat's on the back for me then.......:B)

    Good for you!

    That first outing, whatever the sport, is always the trickiest.

    Nice one gtgf, going out with club members is one of the things I like the most, when I'm back in the Philippines there are runs nearly everyday, once you get to know the people involved!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Are you sure this isn't a message from an alternate timestream?

    First time out with a cycling club and they kept the speed down for a newcomer?

    Is this a troll?

    Hey GTGF, can I ask who you went out with? I am on the other side of the river in Ingleby and get a bit sick of riding on my own.

    No seriously they really did keep the pace down, i was well chuffed. I did struggle at times and after about 35 mile every slight incline felt like mount ventoux. But they were a great bunch of guys, they kept me encouraged, told me how well i was doing, let me draught them without expecting me to take the front for long periods and just made the whole experience an absolute joy.
    They also understood that i had only been living here for a couple of year and were conscious that if they tore off and left me behind i would probably get lost.

    I really cant wait for Sunday.

    Hugo......i went out with Stockton Wheelers. I got there e-mail address on the internet and dropped them a note. They were so friendly and helpfull.
    Im going out with them again this week if you want to PM me i will let you know times and meeting places and im sure it would be ok to tag along.
    Membership is only about a Tenner as well.
