Hello from South Florida!

Hello Fellow Cyclists!

I finished a custom build of a Specialized S-Works Aerotech E5 with Ultegra almost a year ago. I've really enjoyed the outdoors with my new companion.

I am looking to improve my knowledge, skills and overall experience. I haven't ridden with a group yet so that will probably be something I'll try very soon.



Jason

Sup Jason, My names Paul. I'm from Florida as well... The Tampa Bay area to be exact, if you would like to join a bike club here's one I just joined to learn group riding etiquette as well. They are quite nice. http://tampabaysundaybicycle.blogspo...012-rides.html

Hey

Hey Guys!

Thanks for the nice messages.

@Veloronfl I'm in Hollywood, FL right in the middle of North Miami and Fort Lauderdale.

@SHroomy I'll check out the site. I do need to learn how to ride in formation, etc and etiquette would be a big plus. Thanks!

@RonH Yes! See attached. Tell me what you think.

My next upgrade will be the wheels. Currently I have Shimano R500s which I purchased as a starter wheel. To be honest, I need to better understand what makes wheels so expensive. i.e. Zipp 404 Firecrests for 1600 or so. I think I may do Mavic Ksrium elites. But, that will be down the road a bit. I'll be on the Forum looking around and such.

I started a cycling blog at keepcycling.net it's a work in progress but I see it as something that will hopefully keep my interest and commitment.
