    hi another newbie here NYC

    hello
    i'm quite new to the sport - as a matter of fact i just purchased my very first road bike less than a month ago. and i LOVE it - it's a Specialized Dolce Sport . I never realized how HEAVY my mountain bike is till I rode on my road bike.

    I recently timed myself in central park and on average I can do a lap in about 23 minutes when I give it all I can. (ok, before the serious cyclists start laughing - I know it's not fast at all but I'm quite happy with the result. My hubby thought it would take me around 28 - 30 min to do a full lap!)

    I am hoping my techniques will improve enough that next year I can join some group rides with some cycling club.

    Are there any cyclists here also on a gluten free diet? Ever since I have picked up cycling I feel hungry all the time - maybe rice noodle is just not as filling as regular pasta.

    cheers

    Nice bike - I hope it is better than your husband's, or else you will have to trade it in for one that is.
