I'll say hi if I see you. If you feel like giving free advice or critiquing my position when I'm live on that bike, I'd be all ears.

Rode it in today and it just feels a little alien and weird still.

Started racing road at 17. Joined the military and stopped racing at 19, my last race was 1992... FFWD, started rec riding a few years when life/job allowed. Now at 40 I've made the snap, put the J-O-B on hold until winter and dedicated my time to training/racing... first race is next Sunday, CAT5... Just hoping to survive :/

Never been interested in swimming or running, though, like in a triathlon. I don't know why, though.

It's like this, I'm not a triathlete, like deep down, you know. But, maybe I can learn to race a bike, but not do a triathlon, just a bike race.

What is this filter? I have no filter. When I smoked cigarettes, they were Camel non-filters.

Age 33. No race yet, but soon. Avg 100-200 miles per week. Slow, but getting stronger.

I changed my air conditioner filter the other day.
