I was at my LBS today looking at the various selections available. Here's my criteria. I'm almost 56 and 5'9" 235. I used to ride in a prior lifetime. My longest ride back then was 55 miles. My hero was the tortoise not the hare. That ride was 4:52 counting stops at a couple of rest stations for a drink or banana or whatever.
My current goal is to just ride some period. I will most likely ride just around the neighborhood and maybe on some crushed gravel and limestone paths. I expect mostly to be on pavement but want the option of off pavement as well. I won't be doing any true "mountain" biking though. I don't anticipate anywhere near 55 miles miles at any point. I suspect that 25k might be the max or for sure 25 miles.
So, what are the thoughts on this Scott? Of everything at the LBS it seemed the likeliest suspect. Any and all thoughts/opinions/comments/suggestions/etc. sought and appreciated.
