Hello everybody! My wife is interested in road bicycle racing and yesterday I bought her first pro race bike. Now she is looking for any trainers or schools that she can start to train with, and she found a website, but under entry road bicycle racing nothing found. Therefore I must find something. Could you recommend me people for learning?

    Yepp, clubs are the best way forward and will teach a rider many things. Unfortunately though, the first thing they usually teach a rider is humility :-)

    Looks like a solution to a problem that's already been solved. Tell her to join a club, if that intimidates her too much, racing isn't for her.

    Guys - the whole purpose of that post was to get hits on the link.

    I'm inclined to agree with you, link goes to a generic fitness directory website in beta stage.

    Either that, or it's someone with too much money and not enough sense (depending on what their definition of a "pro race bike" is :lol: )

    Given York has a race circuit these days which is advertised as a circuit for all and it's also at the top of the list if you google cycle racing York.
    It's luncheon meat.

    Humility? Really?
