    HI from Pennsylvania

    Hello everyone. I live in South Central PA. I'm currently riding an '05 Cannondale R1000 triple, but will be ordering an '08 red Orbea Orca equipped with the SRAM Red group and Ksyrium SL wheels this coming week. I ride the local roads and average 100 - 120 miles per week.

    I've learn a lot from reading the forums so far and wanted to say thanks..

    Hello kmg,

    Welcome to the forums from a fellow Pennsyltuckian! Lots of us PA folks on board here, so we're always glad to have another. Good luck with that great new ride you have coming!! Also, be sure to keep an eye out for the Covered Bridge ride threads. A lot of us forum members get together when they pop up.

    Greetings, kmg. 100 miles per week is pretty hard core. Did you "wear out" your old bike

    Greetings from Western Maryland!

    Maybe we'll see you on one of the covered bridge rides!

    I have to say that that was one of the most fun rides I have ever had.

    Hey StupidlyBrave, I didn't wear out my R1000, it's still in great shape. I just wanted to upgrade.

    Barndoor, I haven't been on any of the covered bridge rides yet, but it's definitely on my list to do this year. Hopefully I'll see you and StupidlyBrave at one of them.

    EastHill, Aren't we always seeking better and faster?

    Thanks for the greetings and take care,

    Kevin

    There is a point where you realise that just holding your own is enough !
