At my late 36 I started road cycling after 10 years off the saddle as part of my "run away" crisis.
Soon I stacked with the "nasty habit " of long roots especially at mountain roots (Athens region is full of them). Currently I'm training for my first brevet (200km) and I hope that I can manage to ride the full 2011 brevet race program. I own an Orbea TLT 105 and I'm trying to restore - recreate a 70s Italian Romani.
From my point of view road cycling is a "transcendental action".
Safe miles to all of you
