Hi Loan-  thanks for the welcome greetings! I'm not in any racing club or training group.  I'm training on my own for the upcoming Chicago triathlon and Chicago marathon.  I don't consider myself a hardcore cyclist, i'm scared of riding my bike on the streets next to a moving vehicle.  either i ride on my trainer during off season or I drive myself to a trail, then i ride.

Hi Loan, I noticed that you RSVP for Cycle for Change. Can you email me (hloworld@gmail.com) so that I include you on our roster and send you our logistics communique? Thanks, Howard
