    Hello from Southeast Kansas

    I have been reading these forums for the past couple of years. I started biking about 6 years ago when I purchased a Trek mountain bike. I found myself mainly riding on the roads and a few trails. I have been badly wanting a true road bike as I plan on doing the bike across kansas this year. I purchased a Specialized Allez a couple of weeks ago, have not had a chance to ride yet because of the ice/snow. I am nervous as I have never used clipless pedals. We will see how that goes. I am looking for someone nearby who would like to do some riding so I can get into shape and get used to riding with groups. If you are interested and within a reasonable distance of Ft Scott let me know.

    Bill,

    Former infantry and now civilian paramedic. I could not imagine proving care under fire as the stress without active combat is more than enough. Thanks for the welcome!
