I am new to bikeforums but not new to cycling. Got into road cycling in 2001 after signing up for the MS150 Bay to Bay Bike Tour and have participated 10 times. I started on a used Cannondale bike with down-tube shifters and have been upgrading ever since. Now, 14 years later, I am part of a great women's bike team called The Unlikely Cyclist. I ride more than ever and am eagerly awaiting the arrival of a new carbon bike! Wahoooooooo! Glad to find a cool place like bikeforums and hope to meet new bike friends here.
