I just started riding after this last deployment. I have a used mid 2000 BMC road racer with Ultegra components. I have been on a handful of rides this year with a 25 mile ride every week. I am planning on attending the Clarksville Labor Day Classic and ride the 62 mile ride. I really enjoy the riding, my speed has steady increased to an 18 mph average.
Just wanted to say that I have gotten a few things. I was given a Sytance aerobar that were in ok shape. My wife gave me a ventage Allessandro wool jersey and a new cycling shots. No more wearing mtb gear on the road.
