Finally got round to joining the Harrogate Wheel Easy cycling club after 18 months of thinking about it. And what a friendly welcoming bunch they are. Have now done two forty plus Sunday rides and a Wednesday fifty mile ride with the elderly gentlemen or EG's as they call themselves. They certainly don't ride like elderly gentlemen, are great company and maintain a a very respectable pace.
Perfect for my training plans. My aim now is to cycle twice a week with the club and as I get closer to the departure date I shall start adding panniers to increase the load. It certainly makes it a lot easier to get out on the bike on a wet miserable Harrogate day when there's a group to cycle with.
