Hi all, just brought myself a cannondale cx 105 with some slick 25mm tyres on and loving it. Im a runner who keeps getting injured as the body has got older (44) so switched to cycling. All ready cycle to work most days on a single speed mountain bike so having a bike with gears is great. looking to increase milage gradually and enjoy some long weekend blasts.
my question is would you recommend joining a club? and if so, can anyone recommend any in leicester.

    Yes, I would recommend joining a club if only to find somebody who might have some of the knowledge you need in your next few months.

    A club is great! Even if it's just a Sunday afternoon run with a few mates and a pint afterwards, it'll be a great time out and will help your group riding skills and sense of enjoyment!

    Good luck with the bike and welcome to the sport!
