    Personally, what I want out of a club is that feeling of being a part of something. I’m not too bothered about training hard when I ride with a club. I can do that by myself. I really just want to ride my bike and have a good natter.”

    Nope – all those are things I want in a club too, but the only time I’ve approached a local club they took one look at me and my bike and told me I wouldn’t be able to keep up with them (which is probably true). The only other clubs with the right aims are women-only, so I continue to be a solitary rider 🙁
