Hello Everybody

Hello,

I am in my mid-30 and decided to try cycling for the first time.
Actually, I registered for an epic two day bike ride event in support to Conquer Cancer. I have less than 1 month to train for a two day 250 km ride through Quebec, Canada.

Once registered, I went ahead and purchased my first ever road bike, the Trek 1.1, I know, it is an entry level bike, but it was in my budget range. Comments about the bike are welcome.

Anyways, I have posted a question about good padded bibs here https://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...ons?p=12744702 have a read and recommend away.

Holy Cow!!! Welcome to the forums Nassa! What a way to jump in, head first I might add. Congrats on the new bike and good luck on your training and the ride event. Let us know how it goes. Your butt should be good after the first week or so. Lycra shorts helps, get some lube for your parts, Chamois Butt'r works good for me.

Thanks, I actually haven't seen Chamois Butt'r.
I was going to try ordering it online, but don't want to wait for the shipping.
I will try some other LBS.
