A new guy from New Hampshire

Hi all,
I am 58 and do most of my riding as a commuter.
I have recently moved back to New England from Washington DC and Maryland.. I had forgot how skinny some of the roads are up here.
My commute is a little over 10 miles each way and I have a good loop at about 25 miles to work. My store does not have shower facilities and that can be a bit of a bummer. I just use the sink or else stay natural and just stink with Mennen speed stick.
I ride an old hybrid in the winter and a Trek 520 touring the rest of the year.
This an an interesting forum and I hope I can participate.

Hey, welcome.

I am over in Nashua. This isn't a bad area except for Daniel Webster Highway.
Someday maybe I will live in Portsmouth. Nice place.
