Hi, folks. I'm coming off 12 years of essentially no exercise. I used to be a masters racer but I stopped riding for personal reasons. Now my kids have persuaded me to start riding again and it's interesting to have a "family" activity again with grown kids. However, I'd like to understand some of the possible problems and methods associated with starting up at a relatively advanced age. I've been riding since the beginning of the month and last weekend just barely made a leisurely 30-miler, although it was with my kids so it was a lot of fun nonetheless. I'd like to get back into some degree of physical condition but I don't want to race again, even if I could. Would some of you older riders care to share some of your wisdom with me? I would appreciate any pointers. Thank you.
