Hi Julienne. Have a look at the last few pages of the "Saturday Spins" thread to see some of the routes used in the New to Tri/Recovery group. Here's a LINK

About 2 hours at 20-22 kmh I think is about normal.

I'd have to suggest that you actually hook up with Group 1 on Saturday. It is very sociable and you will find everybody very encouraging. Do have a look at the Saturday Spin thread closer to the weekend to see what sort of route the great ones have planned before you go solo.

Hi Julienne
Garry is spot on. You should try to cycle with the Wicklow group.
It's much more fun than going solo, and they will look after you too :)

They have not lost a member yet, well not since the last time, but we are not allowed to talk about that, it never happened :unsure:

Hi Julienne

I will be taking the New to Tri spin this Saturday. It would be great if you could join us. I promise that you won't be left behind.
