Please do not just write off trying at least your state games, my long term goal is to participate in the Florida Senior games in cycling disciplines with no worry about where I will place or any misconceptions about being a dyed in the wool "bicycle racer" or breaking the bank doing so. Get your self some miles in the saddle, get your bicycle ready as it should be and train with a local club or group of seniors. There are several good books by Joe Friel and Lenard Zinn as well as the Carmichael training series, that will help you set up your plans. Go for it and don't regret not at least giving it a go. Best of Luck.
