    Greetings from Lawrence, KS

    Hello all!
    I just moved to Lawrence, KS and started my graduate training in Psychology. Just got me a Trek 7.2FX. I really enjoy riding around town, and school (I don't park my bike - i carry it up to my office!!) In fact, i'm "training" to bike all the way to KC - via the US24/US40 route.. thru Reno, and Tonganoxie. I promised a friend i'd do it.
    Just wondering what kind of training tips you guys can offer.
    This afternoon I biked to Reno, and turned back. Could have pushed for Tonganoxie, but if i had done that, i'd probably have pushed for KC! - And it's my first time out on the backroads!
    I realized that my lower back aches a little... i guess this will go away after some training, but i suspect it could be the geometry of the bike...could changing the seatpost improve the geometry?
    Any other advice such as safety, and winter training and all that i'd really appreciate!

    Keep pedaling. You should be able to find lots of other riders around Lawrence. Keep working with the seat and bars and it will get better.
