Not a complaint, just an observation so keep your panties on even if you don’t agree - I found them not to be so social.
I joined one such ‘social’ ride with the description that 2-2.5 W/kg was the pace. Well, I can manage that Within the first 2 minutes of an hour ride there was a bunch of the front while I was doing ~3 w/kg (I’m avg weight of 80Kg). The ride lead asked that the pace be dropped to allow those that dropped of to join and asked those that felt strong to drop back and pace them back. Naively I did this. The pace at the front never dropped and even going at 3w/kg avg for the hour the front bunch ended up over 3 minutes ahead. So much for socializing then.
