newbie bitten off more than he can chew?
Ok folks, ive potentially done something either very silly or very good. I got myself a mountain bike the other week (rockhopper comp SL 2010). Ive never had a mtb with suspension before so its really good in that respect. Done about 6 miles on it and I seem happy (apart from back ache) nowthen. I’ve signed up to a local group ride tonight. Looking at about 15 miles with some serious hills in it (they seem to think about 3 hours max). Trouble is I’m going from not ridden a lot before to this. I know its probably suicide but im after any advice you can possibly give as to what to take with me. I know I cant do anything fitness wise as its too late but anything that might get me through the ride (both advice or otherwise would be greatly appreciated)
