I put a post on my charity sportive FB page about going for a ride at the weekend. Before I knew it, a bunch of people had 'joined up' and we had a mini peloton going.
But out on the ride it felt wrong. As I rode along I could hear them chatting and laughing as they rode together down my favourite country lanes.
We had to wait for people to catch up. Other times I had to give directions. At the halfway stop they ordered lattes - one even had a bacon sandwich!
I wished I hadn't asked them along. Now they want to come every week, although not as early in the morning. I wanted to share my ride with them and now they've totally spoilt it.
Maybe I should try harder - or am I just antisocial?
