Just discovered these forums. I am a 56 year old female, who just leaned how to ride a bike two years ago from a terrific guy who teaches NYC adults to ride. My latest accomplishment was completing BIKE NY, the 42 mile five borough bike tour on May 4. I ride often in Prospect Park (5 minutes from home) but really enjoy the unpaved trails outside of the city, particularly the rail trails. Signed up to do one of those Bike Vermont tours later this month. Biking has added a whole other dimension to my life.
My main other interest is traveling. Have been to Africa twice, recently to Brazil and Greece, to most of the islands of the Caribbean, Costa Rica, and parts of Europe. All of these trips have included my son who is now 17 and no longer interested in traveling with his mom. Looking forward to taking some biking trips in the future. Lorraine
