I am a 29 year old former powerlifter..who decided to take up cycling. Two different world's admittedly, but both are enjoyable.
I am very competitive, and plan on competing in road races and crits with-in 6 months to a year, by 32 my goal is to achieve category 3 ranking.
I have to admit I underestimated cycling..I figured after my years of powerlifting, cycling would be a walk in the park...I went on my first ride three days ago..after 15 min of climbing I was in a pain that was beyond what I thought was possible..I ended up lying on the side of the road for quite a time unable to stand..rather embarrassing..but really gave me a new respect for the sport.
I have a Specialized Transition, that I am going to use as a road bike..odd I'm sure..but I really like the feel of the girthy frame..good to meet you all
