I just got back into cycling after a 25 year hiatus, and at 56 years old, I'm trying to get back into some semblence of shape. I bought a Lemond Poprad CX bike so I could do both road and smooth trail riding. But I am interested in looking at some local age-group competitions. I was wondering how many of you participate in competitions and what your intensity level is. Do any of you cyclocross, road race, or do time trials? What might be the best/easiest/least embarassing type of competition to start with?
