New Guy

Just joined. Old guy trying to get back into some shape. Have ridden the Gary Fisher Tarpon 1680 miles/65 lbs since July 1 and now looking for a road bike. Might enjoy group rides if(!) I could travel at the speeds I see all ya'll riding.

Do you have a bike in mind? I'm also an old guy trying to regain the waist of my youth. Riding is a great, fun, low impact way of accomplishing this.

I was reading the 50+ forum last Friday which helped me this weekend with what appears to be an 'addiction'.
I got up on Sunday and the temp was 28F and the flag was straight out from the wind. All I said to myself was "I will probably be spending a lot of time in the 39 tooth ring today". Got in two decent rides this weekend; 48 miles averaging 15 mph on Saturday and 67 miles yesterday averaging only 14 mph with a +/-3400' elevation change according to ridewithgps.com. Yesterday was spent trying to improve my rpms.

I've looked at my region and I can't find any group ride that are close. Am looking at the Baltimore MD area now.

I actually "found" a bike. It's a 2011 Giant TCR Advanced Ultegra build. Got it for what I think is a 'steal'. A huge difference over a 34 pound mountain bike except when climbing over the mountain which is a 600' climb over 1/2 mile.
