Yep, it is time to enter the world of "clipping in" with hopefully minimal face planting. I may splurge on a new helmet too given I am sure my current helmet is older than both of my children. Then there is the need to find a very reasonable trainer to put it on when weather isn't cooperative. And, of course, a carrier for my car so I don't have to listen to the husband grumble when I want to take the truck to haul it around. But once I get everything all figured out, I'm looking forward to time on this:

New (to me) Bike
I've been drooling over road and tri bike porn for a while. But today I took the plunge. It was pretty easy as a guy in my tri club put on the list serve that he was selling his Cannondale. Apparently, he bought it from the club VP a year ago, but it really was too small for him and he was trying to decide if he really wanted to get into road biking (had been a mountain bike guy). Apparently, its first owner was more my size so this all worked out for me. While it may not be the end all-be all, it was well within my budget leaving me plenty of room for everything else. And I liked that it was blue.
