Just rode in my first 100 miles, the Amtrak Century. Before the ride, mountain bikers would ask, "you gonna where the tights?" Well, I did, even buying a rode bike a week before the ride. Always like to ride on the dirt but lately no free time except Saturdays so I picked up a old road bike and began to ride to work, and although it was a bit boring compared to mtbking, it kept me in shape to climb cholla and mt goat. Almost getting hooked on this drafting business... nothing like going 30 while being pulled by a pack of 40 roadies... Is it ok to admit that I like road biking a little? I recommend the Amtrak Century, mostly downwind, beautiful views and well organized. ..
