NJ Rider

My worship leader at church has been riding his whole life. He got me a cheap 90ís Rockhopper and I converted it to hybrid use (gravel and road). After riding for about 6 months, I found a 2010 Giant TCR Advanced SL3 that was barely used. Iíve put about 2000 miles in, and I am hooked. I am 5í11Ē started riding at age 47, and I am hooked! I average around 15-17 mph, and itís hilly out here. Minimum climb on my rides is 500 ft, but itís usually close to 1000 ft. I ride between 13-62 miles a ride, but most of them are in the 20-30 ish range. Thank you!

Itís hilly here. I am about 3 miles away from Great Adventure. Like the hills here, occasionally go to Sandy Hook with some buddies and ride there where itís nice and flat.

My primary ride is a 2011 Giant TCR Advanced SL3 and it's the best bike I've ever owned. I'm sure you'll love continuing to put miles on your ride.
