New to road biking in Lower Alabama

New to road biking. Always been a jogger but after several decades it's just too hard on the joints, and need to stay in shape / lose some weight.

Just got a 2012 Cannondale Synapse 5 105 (AL frame). AMAZING difference from riding a 12 yr old mountain bike.

Which Lower Alabama?

When in worked at the Navy base in Pensacola, they called the Florida panhandle LA (Lower Alabama). Are you in the panhandle or the real LA?

Those newer cdales are great rides. The synapse happens to be one of the favorites out there along with the CAAD10.

Welcome to the forums! Enjoy your stay.
