Hello from Plainfield, IL
New member on the BF. 40 year old father of 11 year old daughter who got back on the bike in 2000 in order to get in shape (aerobically) for a hunting trip with customer. Went to the US Criterium Championships in Downers Grove, IL and realized I needed to race again (during college at Ball State, but not a pedal stroke for 16 years). Since then 4 bikes added to the stable, 1 broken collar bone, 35 lbs lost(but I've found 5 of them again) and 20-25 races each year (road & crits).
