Hi everybody! I'm brand new to this forum. Moderators: I checked carefully to be sure there wasn't a similar thread already.
Augusta, GA is the first town I've moved to that has a lively cycling community (although Dahlonega, GA might count at least once a year when Tour de Georgia rolls through). Although I've always been a runner, the cycling spirit has caught on.
I stubbornly have been cycling for the last 6 months on a Pacific Vortex that my parents bought me when I was 16 (39 pound knobby-tired WalMart mountain bike product, now about 10 years old). I used it in the Cloverleaf Duathlon this March, where I placed well despite the bike and my lack of cycling training.
I just picked up a 1988 Bianchi Super Leggera (id'd with help from Bianchigirll) from a local rider. I'm addicted!
The Cloverleaf course (Riverwood subdivision) is closed to the public except for on race day, because it runs through the gated community area. HOWEVER, if you like the course, I created another 10 miler that runs through mostly the same areas while avoiding the gated section. I'd be happy to show anybody the course who wants. 770-713-4206 or just email me.
I'm attaching a pic of my bike! Glad to be here!bianchi.jpg
