Hello from Roanoke VA

I'm a 28 year old male living in the heart of SW VA. I'll be getting a road bike from my borhter-in-law in a couple of weeks and will start riding regularly. Any Roanokers out there know of any good routes for a new rider? Also, can anyone recommend a riding/training plan to build up my time in the saddle?

Thanks

I'm up the road and over the mountain in C-ville. I'm planning to ride Bike Virginia, which will be in your neck of the woods this June. Maybe see you there?

I read about that. I'm not sure if I'll be able to do the whole ride, but I may try to do a day or two.
