I Should have Arrived on an Old Steel Fixie

Today, I went on my first group ride of the season. Since this was my first ever ride with this group, it was hard to know which riders would be my speed. The guy organizing the ride decided that I belonged with the AA group. (For those of you keeping score at home, that’s the fastest group.) I tried to disabuse him of the impression that I was in any kind of biking shape, but he insisted that I looked fit and was riding a Seven, so I must be fast. Thus, I headed out with the fast group, which turned out to be a bit of an exercise in humility. Maybe I should have though of this outcome before I acquired such a shmancy bike.
