I only recently started riding and I'm still learning quite a bit. I'm looking for pointers on training to race (fixie specific stuff would be cool but I don't know what my setup is condusive to racing in) and info on where to find races in my area. I'm going to talk to a fixie rider I know at an LBS in town about this tomorrow but outside of that I don't know many bikers at all yet.
Don't know if this matters but I'm running 38x16 and I can maintain 13-18mph average in town through traffic and such (speed info was gathered by my gps during a ride downtown today) if I push it. Is this incredibly slow? Fast? Not so fast? Doesn't apply at all?
Oh, and what goes down at a typical Alley Cat?
