Sup guys. I'm a soldier with 14 years of service who recently started riding because my knees can't no longer take all the running we do in the military. I started on a MTB but realized soon that I wasn't going to keep up with my buddies on theirs road bikes. After 6 weeks of struggles I decided I've had enough and bought me a VeloVie 300SE and haven't look back. I've put over 1800 miles on it and I love it. I recently went on a trip to Puerto Rico and had a blast riding up the hills, something I wasn't used to here in WA. I know there's plenty of hills here but I tried to stay on trails as much as I can and most are flat. I'm playing with the idea of doing the STP in July or Ramrod...has anyone on here done either one?
Thank you for your service to our country. Welcome to BikeForums. Spin easy gears on those hills for those knees. I am a runner turned cyclist from bad knees too. I hope you blossom as a cyclist and take to it like I have. I have no experience with STP or Ramrod, sorry. Enjoy that sweet VeloVie it looks like a fast machine.
