Uk/ New Boy

I am extremly new to bike racing,

I over the last 35 years have got my fitness buzz from football, running and the gym, a friend recently got into cycling and has pestered me for about 6 months to join him.

I now have joined him , and recently bought a new Giant TCR Ltd, he tried to get me to go carbon, but i wanted to make sure i di before i had the expence of a full carbon bike.

I am now building myself into it and am finding it very enjoyable.

I am from Bristol but I will be in London in Sept where I expect I will do a bit of riding on my daughter's Giant Cypress. I wouldnt buy a carbon bike as I would be too scared of damaging it, but I wish I had a bike like yours.
