I just found this awesome website called STRAVA that allows you to compete against others in a time trial over a certain areas. For example lets say that there is a 2 mile road and it's considered a section, everyone that rides that section's time is put up on the website. Then you can try to get a better time than the best time. It sounds like a ton of fun. Also it will justify my purchasing a race focused road bike (Which I've decided on a Specialized Tarmac SL4 sport).
