Looks like you are checking out the right places for information.
1st, don't overlook bike handling, you want to stay upright. 2. Your position is important. 3. Watch and learn from others.
See if you can find a club or LBS that offers bike handling, effective cycling, or some kind of class to get you the basics. There is a lot of info on the net too but real life training is best. Do you have a club in the area that does a monitored ride, strict rules, no drop, two up max, not gaps, shoulders up, no 1/2 wheeling, etc. The leaders help and ride next to the newbies until they get comfortable.
Look for something similar. Good Luck
Keep knocking down those miles and your skills & endurance should come right along!
If you can I can HIGHLY recommend joining a cycling club if there's one in your area!

Welcome to the team! So much good information on here, safe riding
Hey cyclist. I'm trying to bump up my cycling skills so your group looked fun. I'm planning to sign up for a 32 mile ride in Oct. Hope to get tips from other cyclists. I did a Triathlon in Aug and didn't perform well on the bike so I'm looking to get better.
