New road cyclist from Brooklyn.

Greetings all.
I have taken up road cycling this year after being a fair weather commuter for a few years and mountain biking before that.
I ride a 66cm Gunnar steel frame/fork Roadie, Rival groupset (compact, 12-25), DT Swiss wheelset. (I am 6'6", 210lb). I also have a Giant Rapid stock commuter.
I am 51 years old (two days ago), put in 3500 miles (commuting and "training") so far this year and would like to do Cat 5 racing next year. BUT, I have no group riding experience yet and am not fast enough. So time to HTFU, do some structured training, and get saddle time with a full-time job, a 3 year old and a second on the way. Which is what everyone else here is doing, in one form or another.
I look foward to learning from you all and sharing any experience I might accumulate. Ride safe.

Thanks 10Wheels. I've already done some lurking.
I went to school in Galveston. I don't envy your riding in that humidity.
