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.
When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. — Arthur Conan Doyle
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.
