I’ve been into mountain biking for quite some time. Two years ago I purchased a single speed road bike for commuting to and from work when I feel motivated. I put some clipless pedals on that and have been riding it around a bit. I also signed up for Strava because my brother and his wife in San Fran are using it to track their rides.
Showing that behavior is contagious, seeing their rides has motivated me to start riding more… culminating with a pact with myself to work up to a 100 mile ride as soon as I feel ready. I mapped out the 100 mile course on Garmin Connect.
My single speed just isn’t up to the task nor possesses the technology for long comfortable rides, so I upgraded to a GT GTR Series 2. It is a major beauty and will be my weekend toy as long as the ground stays snow free!
