Ten years. I pretty much quit riding in college since I couldn't afford a real bike and wasn't about to ride my Huffy Street Machine all over campus
I'm pretty much starting form square one. I've been riding two to three times a week for the last month or so and am hoping to start ramping that up a bit. My biggest fight now is that I'm not at all a morning person and I know I'm going to start running out of daylight after work in the next month or so. Oh well...I'll figure a way to get out of bed somehow. If worst comes to worst, I got a trainer.
I've actually got someone I can potentially ride with eventually, but I'll need to be in better shape to keep up. I've got some local clubs that do rides, but I'd need to be able to sustain 15mph. So, I need to workout awhile to be able to keep up with the big kids.
