After a long absence - my last race was in 1999 - from any serious riding I'm back in the saddle so to speak. It ain't what it used to be now that I've topped 50 years and being 35 pound heavier than my "race weight" don't help much either. I've had to adjust the fit on my road bike a bit too as I've lost some flexibility. A majority of my riding is on my mountain bike though as riding these days with everyone texting and in a rush I don't find riding on the road very appealing.
My butt was a little sore at first but it came around pretty quick. I can chug up a climb in the pixi ring OK but any sprints or hard charges are out of the question. Don't know how much weight I can drop until a famine hits or I get serious about a diet.
Figured I'd drop in and see if I can find any old friends and make some new ones, not to mention the inspiration I draw from reading your posts. Thanks for that! -Mo
