Great article, it really puts things in perspective. I haven't done too many TCC group rides but I felt my first ride was like the bad example. There were 2 really strong guys and 2 newbies (my self and one other). The Leaders set a pace of 35-40 km/h and we soon dropped the 4 man because he was riding on 20's. It was really difficult for me and I was so winded when I got back home. I learned nothing and I felt like I was just beat up.
Eric, is this a reference to the ride up the Edogawa, down the Tonegawa, across Unga and back down Edogawa back at the beginning of the year? If so, respectfully, you were the guy that kept surging forward and upping the pace every time you got in front. I did my best to hold the group together by keeping a nice steady pace that we could all maintain.
But I was beat up at the end, my legs locked up when I got into my apartmentΣ（ﾟдﾟlll）!
I just wanted to set the record straight, certainly no hard feelings from me.
Maybe for you mate, but I couldn't even drink half a liter ... withough heavy training thrown in. If you can ... then you need help mate and propably something I wouldn't personally be inclined to brag about.
Kind of like saying " I snort 80mg of coke per day"
That being said, I believe Pete has definitely earned the honor of mid-pack whenever he feels like it. Having led-out so many gruelling transits to the Greenline and back. As far as I'm concerned, he should have a free pass at every refreshment stop for the rest of the year.
No he shouldn't Pete's a fatty and should work for everything.
