I have been cycling for many years in SE Florida, doing the typical A1A ride usually solo. I got into Tri's a few years ago and am deciding that I REALLY prefer just the bike portion. I am 40 years old and typically ride 40 - 70 miles at 20 to 24 mph (wind dependent of course). I have done many longer rides, it typically comes down to time allotment for longer distances. What are my options? The little research that I have done it seems to be crit's and time trials. How do I start out?
