Awesome - have fun with that! I rode for two years on my mountain bike with clipless pedals & slicks. Then when I decided to do triathlons, I bought a road bike. I was in love (since I love to ride fast) after the first ride!

The past 2 years I have participated in the LiveSTRONG Challenge 45 mile ride using my modified mountain bike (clips & shoes and road tires). I have finished both times but decided this year I would rent a road bike and see how it goes. I rented a bike yesterday to go for a practice ride and I loved it so much that I almost cried when I had to return the bike to the bike shop afterwards. I am planning on doing another practice ride in a couple weeks before the big event. I can't wait until the LiveSTRONG Challenge this year to see how well I do!

Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.
