New Biker from Minneapolis, MN!

Hey Everyone,
Just thought I would give a shout out since I'm new to this site. I started road biking this spring, and have loved it ever since. My friend asked me (last yr) if I would bike 3 days of RAGBRAI 2011 with her. I guess when she asked, she didn't think I would actually follow through with it but.. one brand new road bike later, I've logged close to 700 miles this summer and I love it! Not too shabby for a beginner, eh?

HELLO from Minneapolis, MinnesOta!

One ride that I know of covers about half (600-700km) of the North-South distance, and many shorter local Tour de [fill in city name] kind of 1-2 day events. I'm more of a solo tourer myself, so haven't really looked into those.
