I've been a lurker for some time and have enjoyed all of the great information on this forum. I'm a long time recreational cyclist but started to commute about a year ago (25 miles r/t). I logged a little over 3K last year and am shooting for 4K this go around. I also ride a bit on Sundays with some more serious riders which has been fun and really opened my eyes to how fast and fit these folks are. I'm really interested in touring and hope to get some time this summer for at least a one week tour somewhere. Future plans are to participate in the cycle Canada cross country ride.
