New to riding...

Hello, I Am from So. California, and have just started riding. I have done mountain biking and many other sports, but due to injury anfter injury, I have decided to get into road biking. I have several family members that ride in centuries and such, and thought it seemed like a great way to stay in shape. I realized this is a port of pure indurance (I have run half marathons) and was in shock when my uncle (2x my age) whiped me like nothing else on the bike. I fell in love with it, and just got my first road bike. It is an '06 K2. It was in my price range and thought it was a great bike. I am looking forward to getting better (I have improved a good deal in just a few weeks). I am looking at all the other posts around this site, and can't wait to gain some of the wealth of knowlegde that is comming from other irders.
Thank you,
Climber27 (aka Bill)
