Been lurking long enough - time to start contributing!
Name's Andy, 30, and have been trying to put as many miles as possible on my Trek 1500 since I bought it last spring. Funny though, the road-cycling-addiction-insanity didn't really hit me until this spring. Now a day doesn't go by that I havn't spent a good amount of time on here, oogling over pretty shiny new gear or in the saddle. Minneapolis has a great Greenway trail system that allows for some quick-paced, long treks without TOO much fear of kids or dogs running around loose on it.
Have done the Ironman 3 times (only the metric century.. still working up to longer rides), with the first two being on my old Gary Fisher Mountain Bike (very first time with full knobby tires.. bad bad idea). Still pushing to reach the point where a steady 21+ mph is do-able for an extended period of time, but for now I'll settle for 18 After all, it's about the voyage, right?
Good weather, light winds and safe riding to you all!
