I rode bikes a lot as a kid. But once I hit 16 it was motorcycles and cars. A few years ago my brother in law got killed on his motorcycle. My wife said mine had to go. Then in 2010 I had a heart attack. It was time to get some exercise. I had to wait a year until I was off the Plavics before the doctor would release me to ride. I now own three bikes. Ride about 20 miles every night with some longer rides on the weekend. So bikes to me are relatively new. Have you always ridden or did you get back into it later in life for the exercise?
