    Hi from Tampa

    Hello my name is Rick and after a 27 year vacation from the bike I'm riding again. Ride a trek 2100 ultegra usually weekend trips of 30 to 40 miles and love every minute of it. Stumbled upon your Bike Forums and like it here lots of good info, thanks. My goal is to ride a century by the end of "08" . HELLO ALL FROM FLORIDA

    Hello Rick, if you are managing 30 to 40 miles on weekends you should be able to handle a century by the end of next year. Did you plan on riding in an organised ride, or simply do it yourself?

    Welcome to BF!

    Check out the regional forums and ask in there. I know there's got to be plenty of organised century rides in Florida. Good luck!
