    Maryland Noob

    Hi everyone,

    Just wanted to take a moment to say hello and introduce myself. I live in Southern Maryland and recently picked up my first road bike. I work in the IT field and play photographer outside of the office. Additionally, I like fast cars and drag racing.

    Having not rode a bike any great distance since I was child, I decided one morning I was going to take my mountain bike out for a ride. It felt pretty good; I completed an 11.5 mile route in what I considered a decent time and I felt great. After doing this a few times, I decided I needed the right bike, and there has been no looking back. I picked up a TREK 2.1 Apex, in the Ice Green that seems to be unpopular around here, LOL. It's been great thus far, and I'm already working on a few upgrades - I'm a habitual modifier of things I suppose.

    While researching everything cycling, this forum popped up most of the time and provided useful insight and even some humor and spirit so it seemed like a place I would like. I hope to be an active member and learn a lot.

    Any other MD-DC-VA'ers here?

    Here's a quick cell phone shot of my ride.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?

    Thanks for the welcome, everyone.

    You're right, DEK, and thats partly why I went witht this color - the other being its pretty close to the color I painted one of my cars several years ago. My cell phone and TREK's stock photos really do the color no justice.
