Ok, I know i'm new to this STW lark but hopefully you guys can reassure me a bit!
I'm joining up with a different mtb group tonight for a ride (long story - met one of the chaps when I sold him an old wheel!) which should be fun but am getting just a teeny bit nervous as I don't want people to think i'm a weirdo being a girlie turning up by myself joining in with all this....
The riding will be cool and if they turn out to be nutters i'm perfectly happy biking myself and then toodling off home, but i'm used to turning up biking things as part of a couple (not any more ) so this is a new one on me. I don't want anyone to think i'm some sort of desperate singleton-weirdo - I just like biking and talking about bikes to like-minded people.
Anyway, I know it'll be fine. I'm used to biking with a load of lads anyway, I guess this is just like the 'deep breath' before you go into a party by yourself or whatever.... But still, any reassurance would be appreciated!
