So who am I anyway...(like you care...)

I am a biker wannabe... I wanna be a biker... I bought a Trek 800 Sport 5 years ago this month. A cheap bike, but tons better than the Murray it replaced. Problem is I moved a few months later and changed law schools, adopted a child and on and on, so my Trek 800 collected dust and cob webs. Then I moved again...

After figuring out that the practice of law is not for me, I returned to software development with a company here in Evansville. As it turns out, many of my new coworkers and neighbors in my new neighborhood bike. I live a quick 5 minutes from Angel Mounds trails, so back on the bike I go. Have probably ridden a few hundred miles over the last month, and that's about 198 more than I have ridden since I started to drive about 20 years ago.

I love it so much I am going to spend money I don't have on a real road bike, albeit low-end. Hope to ride at least one century next year, with the local Great Pumpkin Metric on my immediate ride list. (Ocr. 13 - Evansville - see https://www.bicycle.evansville.net/ for more details) Hope to do the 100K if I can get more time in the road saddle over the next 6-8 weeks.

Love the forums and open discourse...Let's ride!

Greg

Welcome, great to hear your story of enthusiasm It's great that you've got people to ride with (co-workers even!) and the blessing of some good places to ride, too. See you around...

Welcome to BikeForums Greg.
Have you started commuting to work yet? That will help get you ready for the Great Pumpkin metric and the century you want to do. :thumbup:
