I’ve been wanting to take up cycling for long time. I’ve been a huge fan of the Tour de France since I was a kid and I always wanted a road bike so I could take up the charge. Now I finally have one. The right circumstances-having some disposable income and a friend who could walk me through the very intimidating environment of the modern bike shop, and a sale-made this the right time to dive in.
I’m really happy with my bike. It’s a Cannondale, like my mountain bike. All carbon fiber, with Shimano parts. It’s super light and very fast. I’d couldn’t be happier.
