Hello! I ran across this forum while searching for information on training and increasing my base of knowledge about both road and mountain biking. I pretty much am as novice as it comes in both arenas and I want to get more into riding for both the exercise, and for some competitive aspects. Im a currently a student and I will be graduating this spring with a bachelors in science, and then Im off to training as a Field Artillery Lieutenant in the army. Im a pretty avid runner (although like most things I want to get more focused and in better shape that way as well) and Im interested in doing a sprint triathlon this summer hopefully. I have a scantante r660 for my road bike and a mongoose tyax as my mt bike (entry level I know but its all I really need) Im hoping to learn more about technique and just general information here as many terms elude me like its a foreign language.
