Hello

Hello I’m an engineering student at Clemson University. My bike is my means of getting around. I like riding the trails of the Clemson University forest trail system to relax. I’m also training for the South Carolina 200k brevet in March and the 300k brevet in April. I have been reading this site for a few weeks and getting a lot of good information. I have started to ask some questions and have gotten very useful responses. Maybe I will be able to meet some of you doing the brevets.

Hello Lauren, I would imagine that you will run into a few members doing the brevets. It seems as if the long distance cyclists are a rather tight knit group .

Welcome to BF!

Welcome! And wow! Brevets huh? I belong to a roadie club (touring roadies) and a mtb club and do a lot with the racing club. Have a couple in the roadie club I know real well who are into the lonnnng distance (I mean I like doing trips on the bike - SAG is nice - 5 days was the longest - but we only did between 80-115 a day which I like - and miss) - and this couple has been trying me to interest me on participating in one of the 3(?) brevets my club does. So far I haven't. More power to ya!!!!!

Whoa, way past this old school/slide ruler type. Sounds like a great combination to me based on what I deal with daily in the D.O.D./NAVFAC Southeast Division. Those are the comming disciplines.
