I'm a middle-age convert to cycling. A former college cross country runner, I found last year that my 46-year-old knees could no longer take the pounding, so here I am. Got started Fall of '09 and got into a steady training schedule this Spring.
I live in Swannanoa, NC, and get to ride through the beautiful scenery of Western North Carolina—mostly solo rides at this point. I plan to join some group rides before long as I get my base fitness level established.
I've learned a lot reading threads at BF while researching my first road bike purchase and work on improving my skills.
Glad to be here!
