Newb tomorrow

Long story short, saw the ladies riding through London, and finally realized my last bike shouldn't have been a mountain bike. So tomorrow I'm expecting to pickup a new Allez and get back into road riding after 20 years off.... or since I got a car.

I'm not giving up the car, I love them both too much, I have too much blood, sweat, and skill invested in the race car to give it up, and since it has roof rails, its also eventually going to be the car that carries the bike if I need to go somewhere. And given that it's been 20 years since I've really been on a bike, and since most of that 20 years has been spent behind a computer I have probably the worst cardio system one could possibly have, and it's probably going to take forever to learn all the terminology. Is there a glossary somewhere?

Welcome to Bike Forums! Ask questions, people will help you with the terminology. Questions are the best way to learn!
