Our local club "no drop beginners ride" almost put my new-to-biking wife off the sport.

Not only was she dropped off the bat, but the group was impatiently waiting at the 'regroup" spot and took off again the instant she showed up. Never mind she, of anyone there, would have appreciated a small bit of the rest that the group had.

We haven't renewed our membership in years as a result - likely never will. Their beginners no-drop rides are really only races for people who can only beat ladies in their 50's with disabilities.
