Hello from Western Mass

i have been reading the posts for a while and have found them helpful so I thought it was time to join. I rode for years as a kid but stopped for many years. I ran for 25 years but got back into biking 11 years ago. I rode a hybrid until fall of last year when I bought a Giant Kronos. I am looking foreward to the ridding season and would be interested in riding with any groups in my area.

Hello, saw this thread and had to jump in. I live in Belchertown 4 days per week to attend school in Springfield (career changer, now in the 40+ set). Where do you folks ride?

non-sequiter to Greg200: I like your quote--so true!
