I found out about the Meet-up groups through poking around online using Google and other search engines, but can't remember any specifics.
I hate to rate myself but probably intermediate. I was a very serious long distance runner but my old knees got all too cranky years ago so I got into cycling to keep in shape. From April-October I try to put in as much mileage as my schedule allows to train.
My regular ride is from Glendale to the lighthouse under the Hone Bridge back to Glendale, etc. My 30 miler is that in two laps, but with occasional rides to Mequon if I feel like going up to 40 miles. Occasionally I'll ride with a close friend in the Whitewater, WI area along the gravel paths.
I'm strictly a roadie with my Kestrel KM 40 TT bike but I've got a Cyclocross bike on it's way so that might change.
A former Bostonian living in S.E. WI since 04 working in Chicago in Real Estate, useto be an artist with an MFA in painting, collect Vintage British Lightweights so I love cycles and cycling. Ride roughly[masked] miles a year.
