Hello to all on this forum. I've been "seriously" riding for about a year now, usually about 3 times a week for 15 miles or thereabouts. I've never been happier, since I'm in the best shape of my life and I met my girlfriend while taking a ride! After reading through some of the topics here today, hopefully I'll be able to absorb some of this knowledge and reduce my naivety about this whole cycling business. I look forward to conversing with you fine folks!!!
