don't come to these rides to "cruise". The groupetto let me pull for a few minutes at 24mph, got their second wind and dropped me (again!) about half way through ride. But they couldn't hold it either. So I caught them 15 minutes later.
My reward? They are starting to speak to me. Especially when I thank them for letting me join in and they say "we certainly didn't LET you". HA! In roadie speak I'm sure that's some type of affection.
Progress. I need to get my paces back down to race speed. This is the fastest way to get there.
