I cannot compete with either the graphics of this first blog nor, I doubt, the physical conditioning that no doubt most CoeBRAI riders are already in. I have been exercising enough in 2007 that I now have a "jones" for my bike; I have hit a place beyond the first pains that allows me to really want to ride regularly. I'm currently doing 50 miles/week.
But the main point of this blog is to wonder: might others in CR want to ride together sometime? Would doing it slowly (like, say, eight miles an hour for 20-30 miles) be a deal breaker?
I'd like to do the Cedar Valley Nature Trail this Saturday from Boyson Rd Hiawatha to Center Point (26 miles roundtrip). Any others interested, at the speed (I use that word liberally) noted above? If not, would you happen to know how far behind someone you can still get any benefits from drafting?
