I'm hoping for a move this year to Victoria (British Columbia) It's the epicentre of road cycling in Canada. Year round riding there and great roads. A lot of my training is in prep to keep even close to the lads down there.
In late summer I was there and did a 100 mile ride with the boys and got fully schooled. I didn't pull once, just hung on to the wheel of who ever was in the back and tried to keep up all day. It was humiliating to a degree, but over beers was given some props by other riders for even keeping up to those lads. Still I'd like to be able to hang with those boys and take my turn pulling. I have a lot of work to do.
Hanging on is always the first step. Once you know you can hang on, the rest is just details.
