Thanks East Hill.
I'm a recreational rider, been off my bike for a few years, a motorcycle accident, new home and baby kept me away from riding over that time span. We have a rail trail in our backyard and this spring will start out with me and the wife going out for some rides with the baby in a trailer. I've got a 8 year old Mongoose mtb (DX 5.3, IIRC), not a box store special, that has held up extremely well to occasional use, long periods of neglect and a one year stint with my 15 year-old brother, the wife just purchased a used Trek Navigator 200. Baby will be traveling in a Burley Bee, towed by me.
We wanted to find a family activity, get outside in the sunshine and fresh air, and have a little workout to boot - so cycling should fit the bill. Don't know where it will take us, but it should be a lot of fun!
