Hey whoever is reading this, figured I might as well introduce myself to whoever actually reads these things...I'm from upstate NY and just bought my first road bike (an '09 Raleigh Supercourse) last week. So far I've put just under 100miles on it in the 6 rides I've done. I'm really enjoying myself already since I'm pretty much a fitness/nutrition freak (as my parents call me) anyways. I'll be going up to R.I.T. this fall as a freshmen, so next spring I'll be racing with their team hopefully. Anyways, if you have any 'newbie' tips, tricks, advice, comments, or whatever don't be shy.
