New from Pa.

This is a cross over from the intro thread. Just wanted to say hello from Pa. and say that after a 30 year lay off - at age 62 I am back in the saddle. It feels good. I have also opened a small restoration/repair shop and if you are in my area - stop in and talk awhile.

Where is "your area?" I'm in Chester County and always looking for folks to ride with.

My Location

I am located in Bethlehem, Pa. (Northampton County) and have been riding locally for now, until I get my legs back (up to 10 miles city). Hope for a lot more by end of summer. You can e mail me from my profile or call if you are in the area (484-767-7729).

Welcome, from another newb just back on the bike, although my time off was about half yours. Enjoy the ride. There are a lot of interesting, helpful people here.

Welcome. And I'm envious--used to ride mtb. in the York-Shrewsbury area, where there are excellent mtb trails and Pa. also has the most rail-trails. Pa. is a great biking state-can't wait to head back some day!
