Hi Everyone -

I'm a new user here and look forward to participating.

I've been cycling for the past 3 years averaging 100-150 mpw. I've been riding a Giant OCR2 but this Friday (Christmas Eve) I'll be getting a Trek 5200 - and finally making the transition to clipless.

I also run 45-65 mpw depending on the season and am seriously considering entering some tri's next year.

Thanks,
Thomas

Welcome to the forums tbradnc! I toured your city a bit in 2000 while riding with Cycle North Carolina. The week long event finished in Wilmington that year! Nice area!

Welcome to the forum, Thomas. I feel close to Wilmington because my fiance's family lives there. I've never been there, but obviously that will change soon.

Let's see, that's an average of 17.85 bicycling mile a day. I think I can hang with that.
But that's 7.8 jogging miles a day. 7.8 more than I'm willing to do.
Give me a field/court sport and I'll run as long as there are people playing, but man I hate jogging. I realized after my first few months of regular bike riding that I was never going to jog again.
So if I'm in Wilmington and can get my hands on a bike maybe I can drop you a line and we can go for a ride. But I will not go jogging with you!
