    Hi From Hemet

    I just purchased an Giant OCR2 after trying to ride a recumbent for about a year. Couldn't get the hang of it. I am starting to enjoy riding again after many years. Hope to ride with a group here in town when I think I can keep up. I am kind of retired, just woking part time to keep busy. The new bike should help with that.

    Welcome. I did the Hemet century (not the double) the year before last. I'm thinking of doing loop #2 this year.

    Greetings!
    Women think they're so clever because they can fake an orgasm for the sake of a relationship, but men can fake a whole relationship for the sake of an orgasm.

    I think you have to be REALLY OLD and/or REALLY out of shape to ride those things.
