Well, I haven't ridden a bike since I was a young teenager (some 25 years ago). I have been a runner for some time, but injuries are forcing me to give it up, so I'm looking at getting into road cycling. I have yet to purchase a bike, but I found this forum, and hope to gain some knowledge here to make some good purchasing decisions. Anyway, I hope to get with a decent group here on the front range of Colorado at some point, once I get established. Thanks for the forum!
