So, I finally plucked up the courage and went on the club ride on Sunday. I lasted 2 hours before having to concede defeat as I found myself desperately trying to play catch up. The folks at the club were friendly and encouraging and I am definitely planning to try and make it again next week. However, I was completely shattered all sunday afternoon, slept for a an hour or so after eating and then was good for nothing for the rest of the day. Obviously this hasn't gone down well at home. Is this a normal experience of club rides, most of my cycling has been on my own or do I need to get stronger before giving it a go again?
