Hi there. I'm a 44 year old Mom of two who moved to Loveland, OH 3 years ago to find the awesome Rails To Trails running right through my town. My husband and my boys and I have been avidly riding together for 4 years now, but for Mother's Day this year, my darling man purchased a Trek Madone 4.5 for me. Needless to say, I've been up at the crack of dawn every morning now putting in about 400 miles in a month. My poor, steel frame, pink Raleigh is rusting (gonna have to find a good home for her) because I think I may be in love with carbon. Now, I want to train to ride endurance rides and learn to fix bikes. My kids and hubby all want road bikes and touring bikes and mountain bikes. We like to bike. Funny how a midlife crisis purchase can turn into a passion. I'm interested in training tips and nutritonal experience as I just don't know what to eat to ride so much. I also am an avid core and yoga practitioner and have a happy vegetarian family.
