Hi all, I am from Auckland New Zealand, and I have been into road biking for about 2 years. I use a mountain bike for communting 15km to work as often as I can, but sometimes my work means I have to take the car when I would rather be biking. I have a Marin Verona road bike and like to do about 60 - 70km per weekend on that. I am about to start a 10 week training programme for the around Lake Taupo challenge which is 160km. I am looking forward to both the trainining and the race, which I have done before.
Also looking forward to gaining some wisdom on things "bike" from you all out there!
