Hey Everyone, my name is Mike and as you can tell from my user name I am from MN. I have been lurking here for a couple weeks and you guys are really great. I am looking forward to spending time here and getting to know everyone. I have been riding an older Trek Multi Track since this spring. My longest ride is 21 miles. Yesterday I bought my long anticipated new road bike. A Bianchi via Narone. It's a great bike and I'm very excited about it. I took it out for a quick 11 miles tonight and man is that thing fast. My goal is 40+ by the end of the season. I am also trying to get fit and lose some weight. Currently I am at 257 down 5 lbs in the last 2 weeks so I am on my way.
