The newest newbie (until someone posts after me...)
Guess what? I'm new here! And I have soooo much to learn, I don't know where to begin!
I've just purchased a hybrid (Cannondale Quick 4) after borrowing a mountain bike for a few weeks to see if I would be into cycling.
Long story short, I spent the first 40 years of my life as a very large, inactive person. When I turned 40 I started excercising a bit after losing a large amount of weight. At 41 I was introduced to a group of trail runners and went from running 5K's to 50 milers in a period of 9 months. And now at 42 I'm on a cycling forum as a new rider as I'm recovering from an overuse injury! I may or may not have a problem with moderation...
But I have 40 years to make up for!! I can't believe I missed out on all this fun for so many years...
So, it's nice to meet you all! I'm trying to read as many threads as possible before I start asking questions but there's SO much information here, I'm completely overwhelmed.
What are/were your favorite beginner resources? (is it ok to ask a question like that in my introduction post?! Sorry if not!)
