Hello, Newbie from Central Illinois

I had been riding my 2003 Raleigh M40 HT mostly on light mountain trail/rail trails/road. It has over 5,000 miles. This year I set goal of riding 1,000 miles. I have met that goal and rewarding myself with new soon to be here from lbs (62cm) 2015 Raleigh RX 2.0. This is my first road bike so it will tak few rides to get me more comfortable on it. I alsostarted doing more group rides from the local road cycling club.
