Brand spakin new

Just picked up an '04 specialized elite on saturday. Using it as a commuter and fitness bike (running was starting to get really boring) and I'm going to be riding the thing from coast to coast in the states in about 6 months.

Looking forward to joining the community.

The planning process gets serious next wednesday. We decide if we are going to go east to west or west to east and divide up the trip into 4 legs. Each of us is responsible for getting that leg planned to a T. With all the things we want to see it looks like its going to be 4500 miles all said and done.

Can't wait.
