Hello, I have been getting into road biking for the past few months, since a friend gave me an old bike he had to spare. I have progressed to the point where I can get myself just about anywhere in this hilly city on my bike. I have had a great time, and I have been learning about leg muscles I didn't know existed. I'm really interested in going on some rides with Cascade and meeting some cool people. Although I know I can get myself 45 miles further from where I started, I'm still a little worried about keeping up with people.
As I posted on the mechanic part of the forums, I'm rather devastated with the state of my bike right now. My frame is broken. But I hope I can get back into it really soon.
