Hi all riders. This seems like an interesting way to communicate with those who share my love of biking. I am a geezer rider nearly 69 and have been riding 15 years. Prior to 2005 I road Mt. bikes exclusively but added road riding and enjoy both. I mt. bike locally and in the Lake Tahoe area and I road ride from my home on the many paved trails and wide bike lanes in the area. I consider my self to be in intermediate rider and one who is not too fast , daring, or strong. I ride 300-400 miles a month usually on 25 -30 mile rides on flat and foothills in the area of may home. I have made it up Mt. Diablo a few times ( 2400 ft. in seven miles) and my longest road ride has been 54 miles.
I have three Klein mountain bikes and mostly ride the Palomino Race. My road bike is also a Klein, an Aura with carbon fork and chain stay. I do minor adjustments and up keep on the bikes.
I would enjoy hearing from any one with similar interests or who might like a leisurly ride sometime.
Hi Jerry, I'm on the other side of the country, but welcome to BikeForums anywho! :beer:

Welcome to BF!
I too am from Nor Cal. currently reside in Tracy, Ca. I ride a $99.00 Huffy Mountain Bike that I purchased in Iraq in 2005, but my gem is my 1984 Raleigh Racing USA Prestige that I have only riden a few times. I purchased that one new in 1984, but rode it a few times before I had multiple knee operations. It has been in storage all these years! I was considering selling it, but then I saw this site and now I am waiting to purchase tires for it so I can ride it once again. I am in the military, so my budget is tight, but i will ride again someday!
