Like learning to ride a bike?

I just bought an entry level road bike last week (Specialized Allez Triple). I haven't riden for many years and I decided that a road bike was the way to go. I bought a hybrid bike a couple of years ago (when what I really wanted was a road bike) because several people told me that was the way I should go. I rode it about 3 times and hung it up in the garage. I'm looking forward to learning what I can from all of you here.

New to road biking.

Hi all.

Just thought I would stop in and introduce myself. I'm Larry and I just purchased a Specialized Allez road bike. It's been many years since I rode a bike regularly but I've always liked road bikes. From the reading I've already done in the forum, it looks like I qualify to be a Clydesdale. 5'10" and 240lbs. I am down from a high of 275 last year and I want to keep heading in that direction. I'm hoping the bike will help. I live near the south entrance to DFW airport so if anyone here is nearby, let me know. I'm hoping to find some other riders in the area.

Cool - congrats on the weight lose. I was at 295 and now i am at 256. I am hoping that the gym in mornings and the added commute to work will help shed those other pounds.
