    New from Texas

    Hi, I am new from Kingwood (just north of Houston), TX. These introductions are always hard so maybe I should tell you about my current training. I am an intermediate rider and have been riding about 2 years. Recently I have lost about 80 pounds riding my bikes and have gotten completely hooked. I am currently training for three rides in September / October 2012: Tour de Tahoe (72 mile Alpine), Ride for the Cure (100 mile), Bike Around the Bay (180 mile).

    I have a few bikes now:

    Sc
    • ott CR-1 Team Carbon
    • Cannondale r400 Aluminum
    • Home built Fixie with drop bars and a 46 15 gearing
    • Trek FX 7.3


    One footnote - I am a diabetic and ride with Diabetes. Shameless plug for the Ride for the Cure.

    Hello pkaltx,

    Welcome to Bike Forums.

    Bike riding is my diabetic medication.
    I am on The Dynamo Team for the Houston Tour de Cure.

    Welcome aboard. I'm in Ft. Worth, but I get down toward Houston occasionally to visit family there.

    Welcome to Kingwood. I am in Bear Branch. Lots of good places to ride around here. How far do you normally ride?
