    Hello from new guy

    Just a quick note to say hello and introduce myself. I've been looking about bikeforums and posted a little bit here and there on the C&V group. I just found this group and thought I might fit in seeing as I'm 50+ (52 to be exact). I'm back from an a 9 year or so hiatus from cycling, and to recover from knee surgery last summer I started again. I'm once again hooked. I have a few nice bikes and have been through a lot of other good ones since I got the road bike bug in the late '70s. A lot has changed in cycling in the 9 years I've been away from it, but legs and lungs are still the bottom line.

    Riding in Miami has always had it's pros and cons, traffic free roads being the main challenge, but we're blessed with year-round cycling weather. That and a flexible schedule allows me to ride almost daily.

    I'll look forward to participating here in the future, and regards to all my fellow oldsters.

    Manny

    Miami - Hmmm.

    Peach would be Georgia and citrus doesn't sound like good pie filling to me. Do they have mango pie? My wife and I were trying to remember yesterday. What's in those Cuban sandwiches?

    I've seen mango pie but it's not real common. Best way to eat a mango is naked.

    I haven't had a Cuban sandwich in years, but essentially it's ham, roast pork, swiss cheese, pickles, mayo, and mustard on cuban bread. Eat one and you need to ride a century to get rid of it.

    They are one of the few places on a ride where you can get up to 30mph- unless you have a tailwind.

    A Cuban sandwich is definitely a better motivator than a Cuban cigar.

    Unless the Cuban cigar is at the end of the ride..........or a Dominican for that matter. Just reading about the Cuban sandwich, I gained 5 lbs.

    Forget the sandwich, I'm lusting after the Cuban cigar.

    By the way, welcome to the group, Manny.
