I am 69 years old but at 40 I had won the gold medal for time trial in the Illinois state championships,,,,, the medal was for vets,35-45 , after the season was over I got hit by a semi and was a code in the ER, i quit racing
. I still rode the bike off and on but now I am trying to build up some miles in my legs and some speed and strength. each day I try to increase my miles and my climbing ablity
.I have 4 bikes that I ride, one is a peugot course road bike. all the others are either mountain or gentleman's touring or utility bike. I call myself the Mobb- man on black bike, cuz the one I ride most often is a ratlle can black Ross Eurotour 26 inch wheel 5 speed with front freewheel system, the bike is sort of better than original cause someone put a better stem and saddle on it.
. I am building a blinding lighting system based on 12 volt automotive auxilary lights and a rechargable 12volt battery from Radio shack
I have spent less than 50 dollars, I figured that all these high end lighting systems that they want to sell u cant be any brghter but a lot more expensive.
My bike computer said I was doing 22 mph on the flats.
