"D@mn, I'm slow."
Met up with the local cycling club today for the first time. Well, I went to the meeting place. The club organizer was the only other person that showed. Nice guy. Didn't ride off and leave me like he easily could have but by the 3rd loop he was almost riding off and leaving me on the steeper hills despite not actually trying to. His easy pace became a wind-sucking pace for me. I survived it without needing CPR but I think I've been fooling myself about how much effort I've been putting into my solo rides. Riding with others is going to be good for me.
