Did my first Race/Metric Century

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Did my first Race/Metric Century

It was a blast! I have been riding since the beginning of the summer by myself 30-40 miles a day throughout the week, and it is so much more fun riding with a group in a paceline! My time was 2:54, and came in first in my age group 16-19, only cause I was the youngest one there and the only one in it
I wish there were more races like it around here, as I am in college and it is kinda hard to travel places.

Lots of colleges have teams that you can join. Giving you riding partners and training partners as well as having races in the spring with transportation.
