    Hello from Oklahoma



    Glad to find a good forum! Mountain biker trying out the road and loving it. I picked up a used cannondale (1989 model) in mint condition from a retired air force friend, which fit me perfectly. I put $113 dollars into it for new tires, saddle, bar wraps, and a tune up and now I'm addicted to road riding. I'm averaging 30 miles a week on a paved path at a local lake, but just up'd that to 50 last week and did my first ride in traffic. I am AMAZED at the immediate fitness benefits road riding is providing me. I increased my mountain bike endurance by nearly 50% in just 2 weeks on my road bike. If I don't ride 2 days in a row, I MISS it.

    I am a member of the one of the best mountain bike clubs in the states, the Oklahoma Earthbike Fellowship, as well as, the Oklahoma Mountain Bike Patrol. Nearly all our core members road and mb, and these guys are the most dedicated and friendly people I could hope to associate with. I've hosted a women's skills clinic, in which 37 gals from around the state showed up, and now I regularly host women's and beginners mb rides...I'm adding road to that shortly and hopefully going to do a road skills clinic as well.

    Anyway...'hello'!!

    Hey thanks, hello to you too. I'm so busy I haven't had time to check here anyway ;o). I'm directing Oklahoma's first 24 hour mountain bike race...and with 3 months to go, things are really picking up!

    Hi and welcome to the forum, I've found that this is a great forum with lots of good info and friendly participation. You are going to find that road cycling is an incredible way to get in shape. Its a little adictive as you are finding out.

    By the way, what part of OK are you from? I've got family in Altus, OKC and Norman.

    OKC, home of the most favorite path for tornadoes. Our best local mountain bike trail missed getting hit by about 2 miles this last storm, which the GM plant here. We had to pick up tons of insulation off the trail for our annual Red Dirt Rendevous xc race on May17. ;o) If you're in town and want some people to ride with...just drop a line!
