First ride, and I am SOOO psyched!

Holy S****! I just took my first outdoor ride of the season.

I did one of my typical rides, and completed the 17 mile loop at more than 1 mph over my best average ever last summer.

What a terrific feeling that the long winter and spin classes didn't do any harm.

I hope you all have a wonderful biking season!

I, too, was able to pretty much maintain my own level of fitness during the winter months using my trainer and the LifeCycle at the gym.

It is great to go out on that outdoor ride and not feel totally zapped.

I am proud of myself, and you should be proud of yourself, also. Congrats.

Good job guys!! I'm about 10 lbs heavier (thankfully all T&A), but my fitness is still there! Way to go us.

Nah, it doesn't get in the way. Although, I don't use aero bars.
