    Greetings from the Lake Michigan shoreline!

    Okay, well not QUITE the Lake Michigan shore, but only about 12 miles from it.

    As a child I absolutely loved riding my bicycle. I rode my bike everyday to school for most of my childhood. Only in high school did I set my bike down in exchange for a car. At the time I never looked back, but part of me longed to ride again. Now I am.

    This time around I'm serious about my biking. I don't want this to be something I do for a month or so and then forget about. I want to train for races. I am quite ambitious but am trying to be very smart about it, as I am an asthmatic.

    Anyway, I currently own a Trek Disc 4300 and love it. This machine is great on the wooded trails here in SW Michigan. I am hoping by the end of the season to purchase a road cycle as well. I enjoy both trail and road cycling a lot.

    I'll conclude by asking if there is any advice for someone like me who is just starting out as a serious bike rider. Any advise on the asthma issue would be great too!

    Cheers and welcome to Bike Forums!

    For training advice and such, see Nutrition and Training Forum, and also the specific forum for your type of cycling, Road and/or MTB.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
