Hello from San Diego

I recently found this site to be a great source of information and have decided to come aboard. I'm in San Diego, and I made my impulse purchase of the decade when I bought a Specialized Roubaix in July. And for whatever reason, I'm hooked on cycling. I've set two goals for 2006 so far. First, I hope to cycle 5,000 miles. Second, I hope to make it up Mt Baldy Rd in eastern LA county, just behind my parents' house. (See http://www.socalvelo.com/sub/mount_baldy_road.htm for a route profile.) I biked 383 miles last month, so I think I'll be okay for 5,000 miles in 2006. As for Mt Baldy Rd, last time I rode up, I turned around about 1.5 miles past the tunnels. But hey, I've got over a year to work toward this goal. Lastly, though I've just joined, I want to thank the existing members for their past posts. Searching through these forums has given me a lot of useful advice and information in the last week.

Welcome jschen!

There's much info here on road cycling and learning to climb on a bike.

I believe you are already being paged by Phantowcow in the foo section with a scientific question.

Welcome Jason and congratulations on the Cervelo R3! I'm sure you'll find a lot of good people here, especially in Foo where I'm sure you'll spend most of your waking intarweb hours.
