Perhaps would even struggle with rolling turns at that pace (depending on the distance). When I asked about you drafting, I was being hopeful re there possibly being others joining us So if it's just the two of us, I can draft behind you, and if the pace turns out to be easy for me we can ride side by side. I'm a bit under the weather atm though, so might be well below my usual pace.... will just have to see how I go on the day!
Another thing: it will be just my third day of riding my new drop-bar bike (upgraded from flat-bar road bike), and my first time of riding it with another person so at this point in time it could go either way, in either making me faster or slower. (I'm still being very cautious at this point in time with trying to make sure I won't need to do hard braking... hopefully that will be covered in the clinic!)
I've been on my roadie for maybe 2-3 weeks, after years on a mtb-hybrid so I am as noob as it gets!
When you asked what my pace could be I thought you didn't want to have a slowcoach hampering your ride ... hence me saying worse come to worse just leave me behind, and thought you were offering to stay in front to make my life easier ... lol!
In any event - I'll be there at the clinic tomorrow, with a full-celeste bianchi (frame-saddle-handlebar tape) and titanium-color helmet. We can meet there, see how the clinc goes and if you still wanna go, make all the arrangements after it.
Hopefully see you there!
Does anyone else want to join us (bearing in mind that I might be slow and cautious on my new road bike)? We could meet at Albert Park Lake, say at 9:15 (probably safe to say clinic would finish by then), or if that's too early we could arrange to meet later and/or further south.
My number: oh four one four seven seven nine six oh four.
