Hiyo!

Hey, I'm Matt, live near Syracuse, NY. Been commuting and solo touring a lot since '09.

Mostly fixed-converted road bikes. Two years ago I got my first good-ish old geared bike and left the gears on. Last year I got a proper modern geared bike.

I've wanted to get into racing since my late teens, but musician life... I've got a normal-ish adult job now and did my first group ride last autumn.

Welcome to Bike forums and check out the racing forum. There is information in the sticky sections on how to get started and workout recipes.
