Portland maine that is.

I am so happy I found this board.
I am a raw vegan and an avid cyclist and bodybuilder.
I average about 330miles a week on my road bike and come the fall and winter I hit the weights hard.
I also do a lot of mountain biking
I did not think there were any like minded athletes out there like myself.

Welcome!

I'm also in Portland......but in Oregon :) I hear Portland, Maine is pretty awesome too!

Thanks for joining our group. Not only are there others out there who are vegan athletes, we have many hundreds right here on this site :)

We have a strong raw presence here on the forum and we have a number of cyclists and lifters, so you should feel right at home.

All the best, we look forward to hearing more from you.

Welcome Harley!
We're almost state neighbors (Masshole here :wink: ).
I'm a cyclist also, mostly mountain, but I get out on the road a couple times a week as well. Heading up to the Kingdom Trails in VT in a couple weeks - woohoo!

VeganPotter,

I'd like to but I'm trying something different...I'm starting to lift again and I'm riding about 200-250miles a week. I definately miss riding the 350-400 I did this summer but I think I'll get faster this way(I already feel a drop in endurance though). I'm also jumproping more and I'm gonna start doing some shorter speed workout intervals on my bike and on my feet. I'm waiting for thanksgiving and christmas break so I can put in the big miles again for a few weeks before I drop down again. Hopefully I'll be able to do a few 500 mile weeks(did one this summer and it hurt but after two weeks of 350 miles I felt so much stronger)

***So how much milage do you get in...you and finbarrio have gotta meet up on the road some time

Veganpotter, good to hear you are still riding. I am down to 200-250 miles a week and after this week i will only get training rides in on the weekend. Because of work I can only ride after work and with sunset coming so early I will not be able to get any trining rides in after work.
I will start commuting via mountain bike though but I do not count those miles. So far I got in 5300 mile since march. Not a lot of miles.
I totally notice that when I hit the weights (i.e. squatting, deadlifting) that it definitely helps my cycling.

Finbarrio, do you live on Cape cod?

Yes indeed. My wife (Yogita Chiquita on here) and I live in Yarmouth Port with our 2 dogs and a cat.
Do you know/ever visit the Cape?

We should all visit cape cod for some icy cold road cycling over Christmas...just kiddin...Virginia is cold enough for me in the winter. As for milage that sounds great...I doubt I'd be able to ride so much with a full time job...unless of course I did centuries every weekend. I just get to schedule my classes around my riding. I actually won't take a class I'm interested in if it hurts my schedule.

I'll get the fire going while you're gone. :wink:
I did a road-ride this morning and wore booties, full gloves and a windbreaker. I'll ride in the woods all winter, but I ain't going out on the road once it gets much colder.
