Hello from Columbus, GA. Just got a Jamis Ventura Sport about two weeks ago. I traded in my flatland BMX bike for $150 credit and then paid the rest. I have casually ridden mountain bikes for several years but this is my first venture into serious biking of any kind.
I am going to be riding in my first event this Saturday (Pedal for Hope 2010 - charity event). It is a 30 mile ride and my only goal is to finish and hopefully at least place second to last.
I am 16 and am in decent shape, but hopefully I can start getting out and riding a lot and get better every day.
Hope I can get some help on here.
