I don't know why it took me so long to find this board but here I am!
I started road biking in August and did 2 races in October for kicks, at least I didn't finish last in either. But I've been in the gym and on the trainer regularly over the last 3 months and can't wait to get out this spring (stupid Buffalo weather and lack of light keeping me off the road now).
I'm hoping an upgraded bike and the time I put in at the gym and on the trainer will give me some improved results this year. I'm not worried about winning anything, but starting to be more involved in a race would be nice.
Also this year I'm working on my climbing!
