I haven't been a re-born cyclist for that long but I have been enjoying the experience for the last two years. I have been invited by one of my cycling friends; some will say that it is a challenge, to join him in a race next February on one of our local military bases. Six Months ago I just laughed it off because I am anything but one of the typical A group riders in our group. I started considering it about two months ago and now have more or less committed to giving it a try.
The course is only 32 miles with one or two climbs of 8 percent for a mile each. Nothing I havenít done on a normal group ride. I only wonder if I am starting this too late. Has anyone else tried racing this late in life?
