Ok so I never thought in a million years I would join a bike forum. Nothing wrong with it but it was never my thing and I have always been a classic muscle car guy.
So 3 years ago I started riding a hybrid to get into some shape other than round and rode with some buddies in the morning. That same year my brother who rides on a team in western NY gave me an older Trek 1000 to ride if I wanted to try and do more. It sat in the garage for a year until last year when I decide to give it a go. Ok I got hooked quick. Was riding about 140 miles a week I don't know and don't care if that's good cause it was a lot for me. Rode my longest ride with my brother 65 miles. He's 53 I'm 50 and want to do a 100 with him this year. I also relocated to Chesterfield Va with work this year and decided I wanted to ease some fatigue on my body so I just bought a Jamis full carbon frame road bike and plan on doing many miles on it. Thanks for letting me say my piece. All in all I know very little about biking. I'm always asking my brother stuff so I figured I would hang around for a while if you don't mind and learn some stuff.
