By the way, so everyone knows, the index of members has 2 pages. If you don't see your marker, it's on Page 2 of the map.

Well, it looks like I won't be riding with anyone anytime soon! That's ok, I'm a solitary biker by nature.

Tom, you can put me in Helena, MT, zip 59602.

I am 47 years old at 240lbs in Columbia, SC. Happiness is out-climbing 2 skinny thirty somethings this morning! 2 years ago I could barely ride around the block. I look forward to being Emeritus one day.
