New guy here
« on: August 25, 2009, 09:25:57 pm »
Hey, Im relatively new to cycling. For the last couple years ive been riding my trek 4500 mtb and this summer i bought my first road bike, an 09 trek 1.5. Im looking to get into some group cycling and hopefully some competitive cycling. Is a trek 4500 ok for the turtle mountain rides? I look forward to meeting u guys and maybe doing some group riding

thanks

Trek 4500 is more than OK for turtle river MTB ride. Check our other posts for the weekly group rides. Also, don't forget to stop by our booth tomorrow (We) during the involvement expo!!
The minimum number of bikes one should own is three.  The correct number is n+1, where n is the number of bikes currently owned.  This equation may also be re-written as s-1, where s is the number of bikes owned that would result in separation from your partner.

k sounds good. Do most of the riders dress in kits for road rides? I dont have any jerseys yet so i obviously dont yet. What was the und jersey at the expo for? was that a club jersey or team jersey?

It was a team jersey. If you don't have a cycling jersey yet, than simply wear a t-shirt.

OR, if you have a jersey, but if it says something besides UND on it, you can wear that too.

Yeah wear whatever... but yeah, no need to feel weird. We all wear spandex and shave our legs too.

When Guardrail says "we," he means "some of us."

Not that there's anything wrong with that.
