Starting from Scratch

Hello all. I have been reading the boards for the last few days and I have found a lot of good discussions. Currently I have no bike, but I am researching daily and hope to buy one soon. I am in the Coast Guard so most of my time is spent out at sea. I currently ride a stationary bike about 15 to 20 miles per day while I am underway. Quite a few years ago I had a regular mountain bike, but that was when I was living in PA. Now that I am in TX, I am kinda torn between going with what I grew up with or starting new with a road bike. I would eventually like to become active in distance races and other road races, but on the other hand I would like a bike that I can ride to the grocery store when I need to. So that is where I stand now. Hopefully, I can get some direction here. I am also really big on the nutrition side of things too. I stick to a regular weight training schedule which I have tailored to focus on lean muscle in anticipation of starting this great new hobby. It's great to be here and I look forward to talking with everyone!

Hello ECJ, have you found the regional boards yet? Lots and lots of Texans here, including a large number in IAH.

Keep reading, then start asking those questions! We'll try to help get you sorted out...

Welcome to BF!
