Raleigh, NC guy here

How is it going guys, Name is David. 35 and live in Raleigh, NC. Previous owner of a Trek 4500 that I have had forever 15 good years or so. Put a good 12000 miles on it. Decided to go more of a road style bike. Just purchased a Fuji tread 1.1. Looking forward to getting a lot of tips from you guys as I would like to start training to small local races and rides 50-75 miles or so.
