I took my 16 year old Bianchi Advantage out from the mothballs a couple of months ago and got bit by the cycling bug real bad - so bad that I ended up buying myself an '04 Giant Cypress SX. Have been riding about 4x per week, 15-30 mile rides (told my wife I'd see her sometime in November ).

Anyways, I've been reading this forum with great interest. Hopefully as I get a feel for the board I'll feel comfortable posting.

Please let me know if there are any other Central Massers out there interested in a riding partner (I'm in Fitchburg). I'd call myself an intermediate rider, but that might be overstating my abilitly, especially after 4 individual riders blew past me going up Wachusett Mt. this past saturday.
