My LBS is starting up their group rides again and I’m psyched to join. They have a B & C groups and both rides are no drop. I can do the average pace and distance of the B group (16.5-18 mph average, 30 miles), but I’m a bigger rider so I’m slow up the climbs.
Is it bad form to ride with the B group if they may have to wait on climbs? Everyone’s generally friendly but I don’t want to always be the last one up the hill. I’m hoping to drop some weight and stronger (aren’t we all haha).
Would you recommend starting with C and treating it as an easy ride, or B knowing I can keep the pace generally except when climbing?
