Hey all, I just wanted to do a quick intro. Been lurking for a while and have enjoyed learning from your shared experiences. Been cycling going on 4 years and my only regret is that I didn't get in to it sooner! I'll be 55 in August and I am currently living in the Gulf Coast region of Florida (cycling weather just about year round!). Ride mostly paved trails (luckily, I have easy access to the Suncoast, Pinellas, & Withlacoochee trails). I teach 6th graders so the solitude and relative silence of my rides are key to my motivations to keep riding. Not sure what I'll be able to add to this community of dedicated cyclists but I really look forward keeping up with the shared experinces and wisdom!
