    HI I'm Jenn! I'm a single mom of 2, with a high demand job in IT that usually keeps me busy and off the bike. I love to ride and am trying to get back into racing shape for the 2015 season. I would love to race again because it helps me cope with the demands of my life.

    Hi! I'm Rachelle. Mom to my 3 year old daughter. I haven't consistently gotten on my bike since before my pregnancy. I would love to get peddling again and get back into shape. I plan to start off with my at home recumbent bike.

    Hi! I'm Les. I got into biking a few years ago when I busted my knee. Now I'm working up to run an Iron Man. The weather's not cooperating for riding but I've got my bike set up on a trainer until the spring. I ride a Trek 1200 with aero bars. It's not a Tri bike but it gets me from point A to point B (which is usually point A again) just fine. I use Strava and have it sync here with MyFitnessPal.

    Hello, everyone! I'm Megan, and have discovered a love for my stationary bike this past year. My overall goal is to eventually bike the 1,338 miles that separate my long distance boyfriend and myself. <3

    I'm hoping that next year (when it's warm again) I'll have the confidence to get out there on my -real- bike and log even more miles! Does anyone have a suggestion for a device to track mileage on a mountain bike for when that time finally comes?

    I'm Rob, I love to road bike, I have put down close to 3700kms this past season. Since mid-October I have been riding indoors. I HATE ridind in my basement and find it hards to stay motivated, that's why I love this group challenge. Last month I did not reach my goal.....

    Hiya, I'm Fran from Manchester, England. Cycling in the winter is pretty much for transport (commuting, 6 mile journey) but hoping to get some rides in at weekends or between Christmas & New Year.
