I love the Tour, and watching it. I have always been interested in the sport but have never had the opportunity or the time. . . (lame excuse I know.) but now I am headin' off to school and figure that biking will be the best way for me to get around. Just got a hold of some second hand road bikes, gonna peice them together and see where I can go from there. Any words of advice or hints for a complete newbie? Anything would be appreciated! Look forward to learning a lot from this forum and from my experiences on two wheels!
