    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?
    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

    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.
