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!
