goals: be able to ride a century by the end of this calendar year; drop the extra weight i gained between Cross Country season and taking up cycling

Name:Nathan
Age: 17
Stats: 6'8" 215 pounds
Location: saskatoon, saskatchewan, Canada
race: not yet I am looking into doing it for fundraising races maybe.

I am currently pushing in volleyball so that I can get a scholarship for university, and I figure one of the ways to do that is have good cardio and endurance.

I have always loved biking so I picked up my old bike and have been using it for getting to volleyball practice about a 10 mile-25 minute ride in a city, and after 5 blown tires in 9 days I just went and bought new tires with kevlar strips and I am now looking into what clubs there might be near me for newbie bikers.
