I'm 27 from Northern Virginia (28 in a month). I started riding as a child, and bought my first road bike about 3 years ago a Giant TCR Limited. I've since completed my first distance ride the 2008 El Tour de Tucson. I've fallen in love with distance cycling, and intend to do 1 possibly 2 centuries this year. I also will complete my first mini, sprinter, and olympic distance triathlon this year. I enjoy running 5ks, but I am unable to run long distances so the triathlons will hopefully gear me toward my ultimate goal in 2010 or 2011 of an AquaBike.
