Though I'm not new to biking, I have been away from it for the past few years. I'm back now with a vengance and hope to continue year-round. I commute 10 miles round trip, and generally add on a few miles on the ride home. I'm married 31 years with three daughters, one of which shares my enjoyment with biking. Due partly to her encouragement and partly to my not wanting to wimp-out in the middle of a ride with her, I've logged 500 miles in the past nine weeks. I enjoy tinkering with the bikes almost as much as riding them and am fascinated with different or odd bikes. We own three tandems, three Alenax bikes, a Schwinn Town & Country, and assorted mountain, road and hybrid bikes. I can't wait to get my hands on a lwb recumbent. Enough rambling for now, thanks for the opportunity to introduce myself. Keep on peddaling.
