I'm Dave. I live in Maryland. I am 46 years old & haven't ridden regularly since teen years. Trying to break the sedentary life style. I am interested in road cycling. I picked up a used Raleigh C40 Cross Sport a week ago. I rode around the neighborhood for several days. Today, I hit the road! Did a round trip jaunt from my town to the next town & back, total of about 12 miles. Had 2 technical problems, cycle computer wasn't working & my ipod didn't work. Otherwise, it went well. Really enjoyed the ride. I have alot to learn about the sport. Looking forward to sharing experiences!
