42 year old male
Jersey City, NJ
When it hurts, just pedal faster. I race 'cross here on the East Coast, and I've been hitting as many road races as I possibly can. I got my first BMX bike in 1983 and I haven't stopped riding since. Sometimes I can't decide which is scarier, commuting on my track bike to work in Manhattan or a cyclocross race. I'm always looking for people to ride with in NYC, so drop me a line. Peace to all the New York City messengers, roadies, track heads and BMX'ers. Watch out on your left and ride safe...
Setting off an automated speed camera on my road bike and seeing the picture in the NY Post.
Getting creamed by a taxi on Madison Avenue while on a training ride on my track bike: 3 broken ribs, a collapsed lung, torn rotator cuff, 66 stitches and a concussion.
To have fun everyday. Although racing can be brutal and punishing at times, if you're not having fun somewhere deep down inside than what's the point?
Golf. It would seem to be the antithesis of bike racing.
Brutal headwinds, people who drive while chatting on their cell phones, drive SUV's so large they can't see a cyclist on their right, wheel swallowing potholes, strangers who yell 'Hey Lance Armstrong' (How unbelievably original and clever!) and cops who give bikers tickets for blowing through red ights.
Snicker at the obese, pale skinned smokers I pass by the hundreds on my rides, and keep pedalling so that I do not become one.
I am consistent and able to workout intensely.
I am fairly experienced, but by no means an expert.
I am a novice and dont know where to start.
I like to have fun and prefer partners who don't take it too seriously.

That seems like a good philosophy. Welcome to FitLink!
