    Hello all!

    Hello all. I bought my first road bike (Giant OCR1) few years ago and rode it 2-4 times a week. My weekday trip is about 23 miles and on weekend it's up to 50 miles. On Thursday I am planning my first commute to work. It's 23 miles one way. If everything is working like I plan than I am going to commute 4 times a week weather permitted.
    Yesterday I found out that our city bike club has a Century in August. So I decided to try myself and was looking for the information how to prepare for a century. I have no problem with a distance, I just want to finish in less than 6 hours. That is how I found this fine forum

    so, Hi! my name is Alex and I am amateur bike rider

    Hello Alex, that's a nice commute distance--longer than mine, too. Where are you in NoVa? There are a lot of members in and around your area, so check out the regional forums to say hello.

    Welcome to BF! Good luck with your century.
