Hello From New Hampshire

Hi - I'm Mark and I've been peddling for 38 years. I got off my road bike 18 years ago; dabbled with a heavy hybrid for about 15 years but am back on the road. Had bought a Specialized Sirrus fit bike in 2016, which is a really sweet ride but I want to move faster and cover greater distance, so I just purchased a gently used 2012 Specialized Allez Elite... 18 years ago I sold my Allez Sport!

I also golf a lot as well as being an avid indoor cyclist by way of spin classes at the studio or at home using the Peloton app. I keep moving, so move with me!

Welcome to Bike Forums! The weather is warming up so you'll be out of that spin class and into the fresh air on your new bike soon. Have fun!

Welcome. Nothing like the excitement and speed of a road bike for motivation.

Welcome to Bike Forums. I used to golf a lot. Then I rediscovered cycling. I think my clubs are somewhere in the back of the garage...

You got that right. Getting back on the road with the Sirrus was terrific for 2 seasons, but watching the true road peddlers blow past me got me yearning for more. Now, I'm not saying I'll keep up with those barn-burners, but I simply want to cover more distance more efficiently.
