My bike times are slower than a slug! I'm figuring the only way I 'might' stand any chance of improving my times are by joining my local club. I'm slow. I can keep going all day long at my own pace and regularly ride 40+ miles, with minimal stopping (ie quick gel, waiting for traffic at junctions).
My problem is, I really don't like the idea of riding in big groups. I'm fine when I go out with 3 or 4 friends (all of which are faster than me), but I know I would be nervous and anxious riding in large groups. Just a personal thing as I hate holding traffic up in our small group, let alone impatient drivers when there's big cycling club groups.
How can I improve?
