    Checking in from Allen, TX !!

    Whats up Texas riders!!-my name is Alvin and I'm just dropping by to say hi, I'm the new guy! Great website here and pretty active!

    A Little info on me:

    I'm a U.S. Navy Veteran living in Allen, TX. Been riding bicycles my entire life. Just recently got into road cycling in March and now I'm totally addicted lol.

    Been riding a minimum of 40 miles per week...commute to work once per week (32 miles round trip), do laps at White Rock once in a while, Tour Allen/Lucas area solo a lot....Had a blast at the WildRide, and registered for the Collin Classic 100k!

    I'm riding a Specialized Roubaix Elite at the moment-but here's a shot of my fleet LOL:

    Howdy, welcome to Dallas! When you're looping around White Rock don't forget the hills (it took me a few weeks before anyone told me about them...) Loving -> Shook -> Westshore -> Winstead They'll make the trip to the lake a little more worthwhile.

    Enjoy the ride,
    Shelley

    Fellow Allen resident here. I'm sure we've probably crossed paths out on the road at some point in the last year or so since I moved into Allen. There's a neighborhood just north of Stacey, just to the East of Angel that has some very short hills but can still get the legs burning that are a lot closer than White Rock. Also down at the end of Snider Rd in Lucus is a short steep climb.

    And on this Memorial Day weekend, want to extend my thanks for having served our country.

    Hey thanks for that tip! I've been exploring the entire Allen/Parker/Lucas area for decent hills to interval on! I've been down Snider Rd! Those hills are nice! It's exactly 10 miles one way from my house to the boat dock down there on the end of Snider...so I'm always out on that path cycling 20 miles. I stay in the neighborhood across from the Bethany Lakes Park...maybe we'll bump into one another sometime!

    Oh another spot i like is the straightaway on Angel Pkwy. just North of Exchange....no traffic lights or stop signs for a mile and flat....Nice spot to work on speed intervals!!

    Welcome. I'm also in Allen, live just south of Lovejoy elementary. Ride on Saturday mornings, sometimes by myself, sometimes with one or 2 others. I can show you a few very nice hills, great for interval training.

    I'll have to join another day perhaps. I've promised to make an appearance on the Distance Builders 2 ride with the PBA on Saturday morning. It has been too long since we've crossed paths pathdoc. If we finally get a break from the heat early next week perhaps an evening ride?
