New Rider In Love!

Hey y'all!

Been riding on and off for over a year (minus about 8 months to hike the Appalachian Trail last year) but recently picked up my second road bike (2013 Bianchi Impulso 105) and sold my first (Fuji Finest-AL). Absolutely fallen in love with the sport and want to get in good enough shape to eventually go competitive!

Trying to get into good climbing shape especially, which is pretty mandatory to ride anywhere in East Tennessee where I live! I'm an avid backpacker, decent fly fisherman and rock climber but just joined the forum and am very excited about my cycling future. Starting from scratch with a new bike stand and little to no mechanical knowledge but can't wait to talk to people on the forums and learn!
