Been seriously riding since mid-80s, picking it up again after about a 10 yr hiatus. Now 58, I avg 2500 mi/yr, 25-30 mi/ride, not too much climbing anymore depite the area's notorious hillyness. Love them river valleys and my C'dale R-700.
Music is the other passion, from Bach onwards. Have lost some of my hearing because mama was right about loud rock n roll and my drumming with music in the head phones. Sure do love that mirror on my helmet.
Hope to have some good conversations with y'all. Warning: I'm a decent writer but my typing/spelling is horrible.
