    heyy

    Just another intro thread here. Lemme ask a biased group a question: is this a good forum?

    Anyways, I am looking to get into distance cycling, and thought I would train for and do a century as a good starting point. I play soccer competitively (I'm 15) and it would be good training, which is what lured me into this interesting sport.
    What would be a good starting point? A Century sound good?

    The other day I tried my legs to see how far they would take me, and I went 36km with energy to spare, although with quite a sore arse. I'm on a Trek 3500 MTB currently (lol) and will put some slicks on it to hold me over until I scrape together some change for a new bike.

    I have more questions, but will post them in the appropriate sections, and like a good forum citizen I promise to use the search!

    You type like an Australian.
    The automobile has not merely taken over the street, it has dissolved the
    living tissue of the city. Its appetite for space is absolutely insatiable;
    moving and parked, it devours urban land, leaving the buildings as mere
    islands of habitable space in a sea of dangerous and ugly traffic.

    A century is a good starting point for someone who wants to do long distance cycling.

    You could try other forums, but almost everyone who hasn't been banned returns here. Must be a reason, eh? You be the judge .

    A MTB will go a long way to building you up. When you finally upgrade, you will think you are flying along the road.
