Been rolling through the streets on two wheels since 2017. Not to brag, but in my cycling club (bike gang) they call me Bichael Jordan. I have not cycled competitively, but I've done the MS150 twice. So you can say I am pretty legit.
My bike club. Multiple Cyclosis, a biking team/club started way before I got into cycling. It has been the biggest pull bringing me closer to the sport. Over the course of training and practicing I've graduated from a newbie who rides in shoes, to clipping in to my pedals. The clips make cycling wildly more efficient, they also make falling down wildly more efficient as well.
