New road cyclist looking for advice/tips(4 posts)

New road cyclist looking for advice/tipsjasut
Sep 29, 2001 10:43 AM
Just bought a road bike after spending almost all of my past cycling days on a mountain bike. In addition, I have taken a hiatus from serious cycling of any kind for the past few years. I am looking for tips on riding form and good road bike websites that will help make me a better overall cyclist.

Any help out there?

I'd encourage you to visit Sheldon Brown's site (is it Sheldonbrown.com?) as well as Bicycling.com

Good luck and have fun.

General info searches

http://help.yahoo.com/help/clubs/tour/newclub/index.html (a few nice forums here)
http://www.bicycling.com/

Note too that many manufacturers have a wealth of product specific and general knowledge, albeit at the cost of a few minutes (hours) surfing. Take your time in approaching these online sources and don't forget to bookmark in a specific folder.

From these (of course there are others), you should be able to find most any aspect of cycling you'd like. Oh, and riding LOTS makes you a better cyclist!

Good luck
