    Hi My name is Fermin, I’m just getting into cycling, I bought a Road bike last week and I have to say is an awesome feeling. WAY back in the day (1980's) I used to race BMX competitive, I loved it then i grew out of it and now in 2013 I decided to get back on a bike. I hope to meet people here and learn more about Road bikes. Any suggestions and advise is always welcome. thank you!!!

    2012 SCOTT S50 is a lovely looking bike.

    Best advice I can give you is to gradually increase your mileage as you go. This sport - whether it is racing or touring - is not a sprint but a marathon.
