First of all I just want to say that I'm really enjoying the bike forums site, especially the commuting threads. I'm new on here and hope to stay somewhat involved so, for all the regulars, here's a little about me.
Iím Brock, Iím 27, live in Frisco, TX, and work in north Dallas. Back in the day I did triathlons, including Ironman USA (in Lake Placid in 2003) and plan on doing more in the future, but since I got married about 3 and a half years ago cycling has been on the back burner (so have running and swimming for that matter). For a while Iíve wanted to ride more often but never ďfoundĒ the time, so I decided that commuting by bike would be a great way to get miles in, stay fit, and just get back into cycling in general.
That being said, I rode in to work today (~18 miles) for the first time and intend to do it as often as possible (planning on every day). I havenít ridden much at all for the last 6 months (at least), so Iím diving right in, and I gotta tell ya, right now my whole body can tell that I havenít ridden in a while! But Iíll just keep plugging away and pretty soon Iím sure I wonít feel quite as worn out.
