Hi & a question

Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' started by titus, Feb 7, 2005.

  1. Hi Folks,
    New to the forums, and hope to meet you all at a ride or coffee soon.
    I've been riding a few years now but usually solo, and recently had a couple of years off while doing the new family thing, so I'm keen to get back into it now that I've got time.
    One thing puzzles me - how do you guys rate your group rides? Like advanced, intermediate, intermediate+ etc.. I guess beginner is obvious, but what kind of criteria for the other? Is it pace, difficulty of route or something else?
    I'd be glad of some guidance so I can pick the right events to sharpen up again. Thinking maybe of doing Sundays social ride if I can get away.
    Should be a good'un.

  2. welcome to the forums.
    Advanced rides can vary between simple distance to 100km of constant twisties, where as beginer riders are shorter, not so much of the tight twisty stuff.
    Browse through the rides section and take a read most posts there are marked not for learner or experienced riders and compare
