New rider from Hawaii

Hello all, my name's Bob and I live out in paradise known as Hawaii. I've been active duty Navy for almost 22 years now and plan to make it a career.

I am new to the world of cycling and just bought my first road bike today, bought a 2008 Specialized Allez Elite. I'm a pretty fit guy and run everyday and I was looking for something to help break up running and thought cycling would be a great way to do it. My plans are to use the bike for fitness and commuting in the beginning until I get a little experience and then try and find a team out here and join them for some team rides and go from there. Glad I found these forums and hopefully I can learn alot from some of the more experienced guys here.

Hi Bob! You got yourself a fine machine there. WARNING: You are about to become a cycling addict! You'll see what I mean in a month or so.

Welcome to BikeForums!
