Howdy from Richmond, Texas that is.
I have not been involved in cycling much over the last several years. With the exception of riding the local MS150 every year but one since 1998. I usually do that with one of my daughters on our Double Vision recumbent.
While I like the recumbent, it lacks the accelleration of my road bike. Which currently is an old Scwhinn Ontare with Sun Tour components. Drive train anyway. I am in the process of building a new bike from parts and a frame. Can't wait for it to cool down and me to get the bike put together.
I am hoping to get a little more riding in before next April, so the MS150 won't hurt so bad. I figure one or two more years of the tandem and I will have both of the girls on their own bikes and I can ride a single bike again. That will make climbing the hills easier, but the descent won't be near as fun.
