Tips on 4th cat road racing
Wonder if I could ask a little bit of advice - I'm a keen leisure cyclist, reasonably fit, average ride speed solo is about 19-21mph if I push a little bit... I've ridden in groups a bit but not a huge amount.
And now, as the headline suggests, I'm thinking about trying out racing! I live pretty near to Hillingdon Cycle Circuit and am thinking about trying one of their 4th cat Tuesday night races - just wondered if anyone on here rides them or has done, and if there are any tips you guys might be able to give me?
In short, I'd like to know if I'm going to get monstered or would I be able to keep up, will it be aggressive, will I crash? Oh and I ride a Boardman Team - will they laugh at me too much?!
I'm not hoping to win or podium, but I'd like to try a race and be able to finish in the group for my first one - after that, who knows!
