Better get on in here

Lets see, as far as my interest in biking, it begins with triathlons. Just purchased my first road bike last summer - KHS Flite 300. It served its purpose - minus the 3 blowouts at my 1st tri because of a faulty rim strip - replaced both rims with a much stronger more durable strip. I would have to say I am a runner at heart, but enjoy the multi sport interaction of a triathlon. I'm a middle of the pack swimmer and biker, but enjoy a good run at the finish.

I approach much of my bike workouts as just that - workouts. I probably need to ride for enjoyment more often, but I find it easier to train if I am on a mission or set a goal before I ride.

I try to accomplish most of my workouts during the lunch hour or before work, in order to spend more time with my family.

That is about it for now, I look forward to chatting with all of you in the future.

Welcome aboard.

Was that you carrying your bike next to the lake at the Shawnee Mission Tri? I believe I offered you a tube!

Get out and take a look up from the gears sometime. Kansas can be a beautiful state.

Finally another triathlete on this forum!!!!!

Welcome and it will be great to have you around here. This is one great place to be as the people are super and the knowledge is endless.

I just started doing tri's last year and I am hooked. I am more a cyclist at heart and hate the running so maybe between us we can work something out to make it easier for each of us.

Mike
