    introductions

    New dude here.
    Bikes: MTB: GT STS Thermoplastic Dual suspension bike
    Road: Litespeed Tuscany
    Cannondale R600 Aero

    Age: 30

    Other: Don't like riding with other people because it screws up my training regiment....it just turns into some male pissing contest of who's the baddest...bad for structured training.

    I don't ride my bike because its fun. I ride so that I won't feel the need to destroy or beat down anyone that piss me off...one word: Catharsis. Fringe benefit: my family can stand being around me.

    Well, welcome to bikeforums anyway! How do you like that Litespeed? I almost purchased one acoupleof years ago, drooled over for sometime before I convinced myself I had enough road bikes.

    BTW, the word is regimen. A regiment is a military unit. Have fun riding alone!

    eschelon: I ride alone most of the time cause there are no cyclists in my neighborhood. I'd like to have a riding companion or two. I have to do group rides to find someone to ride with. And it seems there are different folks riding every time, so I never get to know anyone very well.

    Gus: You should have asked sooner. I bought a Litespeed Tuscany last April.
    LOVE IT. :thumbup:

    Hi!!

    I enjoy riding by myself, but for different reasons. Not being much into "training" I simply enjoy the peace and being my own boss, setting my own pace, stopping and starting when and where I want.

    Enjoy the forum.

    D*Alex - perhaps he DOES have a training regiment? Possible. Anyway, thanks for the correction. I know that I and others would never have figured out that he meant regimen without your assistance. Appreciate it very much.

    eschelon,
    I like that word, catharsis. I ride the same way a lot too.

    I find I ride alone a lot too. My cycling partner packed it in for the winter. I trust he'll be back out in the spring. We pretty much match eachother in ability. I don't have the attention span to stick to a training schedule. Neither does he.

    The only other people I ride along side from time to time are cycling advocate types who tend to ride at a pretty casual pace but at least they generally stick to the road. They make up for the casual pace in organizing and engineering ability.
