Day 0 to my bike training

As many of you know I have joined the “Team in Training“. But, like everything in my life. I do things out of order. I joined this awesome program and committed to pedal in a 100 mile race.

When I made the commitment I had no bike, no bike gear, or even a Helmet.

Just to give the few of you an update.

The wife surprised me by getting me a Trek Bike. It is a nice starter bike. A hybrid bike between a road bike but with the mountain bike feel. It took me many store visits from all over city to finally find the style that I like.

People always ask what bike I recommend. I don’t think you can go by a single brand. You must really go out and see what bike you feel the most comfortable in. If you are going to race you must keep in mind that you will be pedaling for hours at a time.

So, now I must go look for bike shorts and a helmet.
