Hi, I've been reading for a while but finally decided to introduce myself. Originally from AZ, moved to Loa, UT for a job. Along the way I was introduced to road biking and just got my first bike, a Novara Randonee. Commuted to work last week and discovered its a bit cold in just bike shorts, but as soon as my tights come I'll be out there most mornings.

My boyfriend is attempting to get me to ride cross country with him next summer so I'm training as much as possible. Also looking for a touring bike (I'd ride the randonee but the down tube has a dent).

Well see you all around, and if there's anyone in the area that wants to ride with us we are always looking for friends, cyclists or not.
