Newbie old guy.

Thanks for the welcome. I'm an enthusiastic bike rider but almost all of my riding is done alone for exercise. I ride hard but, at my age, it doesn't amount to much. Not even the dogs are impressed. Nevertheless, I get into the saddle for about an hour every morning and enjoy the fresh air and dog races. Luckily, I live in the country so heading out on country roads just means getting to the end of my driveway. At the crack of dawn, I can sometimes go 5 or 10 miles before I see my first car. That's nice.

I ride a mid priced Italian road bike that is completely stock except for the saddle. I have a hybrid as well that I use whenever I go into town on a bicycle and I even have a mountain bike that's way over this old guy's head. I find riding off the road really chanllenging but I don't do it very often.

I operate a forum as well that is involved with cooking. I love to cook and I do it pretty well. If you like to talk about kitchens and cooking join us at http://www.foodieforums.com.

I look forward to some interesting bicycle related discussion.

Welcome to BF.

Old?? What's that? I'm 60, a bike commuter and weekend roadie and I'm not old.

What kind of bikes do you have? "mid priced Italian road bike" doesn't give us much information.

I'm 61, not old in the overall scheme of things but older than most road bike riders. The mount is a Celeste colored 2002 Bianchi Veloce. It's a steel framed, campy powered road bike. I've replaced the saddle with a Selle Italia model that has some give at the back and I use Speedplay X2 pedals because they allow some foot rotation and that makes it easy on the knees and hips. I ride daily, mostly alone, on country roads. I live in the country, and work here as well, so I don't have far to go. Hope that completes the introduction satisfactorily. Glad to know I'm not the only gray haired person on the forum.

There are lots of "older" members in the fifty plus (50+) forum. But be careful, some of them are OLD.
