I am wondering, after reading many of these posts, if there are any Athenas who post.
I am a 67 year old Athena who wants to get back to riding after over 20 years. I would really love to know if there are any other women who post on this forum.
I need to get a bike and I am thinking of looking on Craig's list. I would love to get some advice on a good type or make of road bike or touring bike. I owned a Raleigh back in the day. Actually bought it in 1972. It was a great bike, I rode it from the northern end of Vancouver Island down the island and then down the west coast to San Francisco and back to Gilroy, CA where I lived at the time. It was a wonderful road trip, but I pretty much gave up riding after that except for a few day trips. I haven't ridden since about 1992, so I am really behind the times as to bikes and bicycle equipment in general.
Any suggestions you might have for this older Athena (6' 245 lbs.) would be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
