2013 Jamis Xenith T time trial bike, 2013 Jamis Xenith Elite
630 miles since March isn't a bad start. Welcome to Bike Forums. I started by commuting 12 miles a day and now I feel lost if I dont get at least 100 miles a week. We all start somewhere. What kind of riding do you do?
Lately I've been doing really short, loop rides, because of construction, but they basically finished so now I can ride longer without feeling any danger. I have just a basic road bike too, nothing fancy. The route I do doesn't have any hills at all, unfortunally in some ways.
Welcome Lisa! Nothing wrong w/ a basic bike, there's lots of us here who like them super simple and lots who want ultra fancy and many more in between. The important thing is you're riding. It's not the bike, it's the engine (you) that's most important.
