Greetings fellow cyclists! It is wonderful to be amongst you again. I returned to cycling three years ago after about 2 decades of relative sedentariness. From riders like you and through forums like this, I've learned to care for my bike and train smart. I'm a recreational rider of the road and rail trails. I especially enjoy the MS 150 and events of that nature. I was prepared (physically) for the best season ever last year when I was called to duty in Afghanistan. After 5 and a half months working in the Army field hospital at Bagram I'm ba-ack! So you see, it IS wonderful to be amongst you again! I'm looking forward to getting to know you and sharing in the conversation.
