First things first...I am very new to riding!!
I am currently in my late 20's and a female trying to get into the cycling world. I just purchased a Felt F65 and yes I love the bike. Just my size, considering I am short as all get out. I have been biking with a friend lately as he is really into road cycling and figured I would pick it up as a good health benefit on my part for cardio. I am really looking forward to becoming a avid cycler...I just love it.
However, I wish I could find a female riding partner, after taking a look into this forum site. I as being a female apparently it is rare to come by.
Anyways, I hope to learn a lot from y'all. I am currently looking at going clipless. Any suggestions?? I have been doing my own research online and have found that the Speedplay Zero stainless pedals are right up my alley. I have accomplished my first group ride just this past Wednesday and well, I have a lot of fears to get over, lol. It has been close to 12 years since I have been on any type of bike and lets just say, I will never go back to mountain biking, but I have found a passion for road cycling. Any advice, I would be glad to take!
Especially on how to conquer these hills in the state of South Carolina LOL!!!! I know that it will take some time to get used to and accomplish a lot of things. Thanks for having me here.
