Hi. I am a college commuter of 2 years who has become increasingly more serious about riding. I would like to do some racing or events but am having trouble finding a breakdown of what everything is (i.e crits, randonneurs, centuries, etc). I ride a cyclocross bike for commuting, and before that a fixie that I had built myself. I am not really interested in being ultra competitive against other people and more concerned with competing with myself and always trying to get better times, however I am certainly not afraid of a commuter battle, or trying to drop some guy at the loop in the park, but its very friendly, and I sometimes just decide to stop because of beautiful scenery. I love doing longer rides in rural areas where I compete with my last time and push myself very hard. I know this might sound vague but maybe someone can suggest something. If anyone knows any particular events, I'm in nyc.
