I'm a new rider - about 3 months. I have a mountain and road bike. At almost 62 years old I may have to settle for the mountain bike as my permanent ride. The road bike is too hard on my back. Last month I rode about 400 miles. My longest single ride so far is about 62 miles. My wife and I ride together, however she is off for a while. She took a fall last Saturday and had a bad ankle break. She will be back with me in April.
I'm one of the pastors of local church. I am able to ride early mornings and evenings. I've bought some good lights. Also, my days off are usually spent riding. My sport of choice used to be racquetball, but an old knee injury has made me change to riding. This is my new sport of choice.
