New Rider from CT

Hello,
New rider from CT this summer. I joined a group that was to ride in a charity ride the Pan-Mass Challenge 192 miles in 2 days across Massachusetts to raise money for the Jimmy Fund. Well the ride was last weekend. While I finished ok I would have had a lot more fun if I had more than 200 miles in this summer with only one ride at 40 miles. Averaged about 17.5 mph but not without a good deal of pain. I joined the forums shortly before this race to look into bikes and training neither of which I did much. Road in the ride with a borrowed $250 bike with down tube shifters that really didn't work well. Looking forward to doing it next year on my own bike, much, much more prepared. -Drew

Welcome Drew to Bike Forums.
You would like the new bikes with Brifters and warranty from the bike shop.
You must be very strong on a bike to have completed the 200 miles.

Well I don't know about strong I probably haven't ridden a bike for 19 years when I was 11. It's more determined people with cancer and their families have to endure a lot more pain than I did.
