    1st Ride

    Hello,

    My name is Mark im 5'10 and about 285lbs. I live in Piedmont SC

    I just got a new bike (2008 Specialized Allez) form Sunshine Cycle Shop in Greenville


    Well I went on my first ride today. It was just a little over 7 miles in just over 1 hr. I now understand the need for Padded shorts(LOL).

    All in all I really had fun out there today and look forward to many more rides.

    I have a group of friends that ride 25 -30 miles every Sun. I hope its not too long before I can ride with them!!

    Nice to meet Everyone,
    Mark

    Hi Mark, you will get faster. You will get tougher. Padded shorts can help with getting tougher .

    Nice bike!
