Hello from eastern NC

Hi everybody,

New guy from New Bern, NC....

I just recently got into road biking this spring when my Dad gave me his old Trek. I have been riding ~300 miles/month since I found a local group that does a Sunday morning ride to add to a couple solo rides each week.

I also did a sprint triathlon in May and am planning to do another next weekend.

Oh and I am planning to do a hundred miles each day for the Bike MS ride here in New Bern in September.

So, yeah you could say I fell for the bike thing pretty hard...

Love the forums here, lots of good info so I figured I should quit lurking and sign up,

Thanks for the welcome. The bike is a 1982 Trek 710. I posted a few pics in the classic/vintage section.
As for the mileage, I admit I have gone a bit nuts. But its a good kind of nuts.

Thumbs up on the photos for C & V .

And as to the mileage, hey, I am never going to say any one rides his/her bike too much .
