    Newbie from PA

    Hi everyone! I'm 50+ dad from Central PA who recently started riding to improve my health. I ride the NCR trail a couple of days a week. I'm looking forward to learning from all of you so that I can "catch up" on what I've been missing. I rode everywhere when I was a kid but as with many of us, the thrill of driving relegated the bike to the rust bin. Now I would rather ride than drive! Funny how wisdom comes with age.

    Hello Gr8Day2ride, lots and lots of members from your area. If you haven't already done so, visit the Northeast regional forum and say hello.

    What kind of bike have you got?

    Welcome to BF!

    My Iron Horse

    I'm half ashamed to say a Huffy. Hey, it's what was available until I can get a Trek. Besides, getting in shape on an "iron horse" will only make riding a decent bike all the more pleasurable

    Hi Gr8Day2ride-

    Welcome to BikeForums and congratulations on digging the bicycle out of the garage. You'll find lots of information here. As a matter-of-fact, there was a thread going about a metric-century (62 miles) that was just held in the Hershey, Pennsylvania area. Have fun.

    Don't worry about your bike being a Huffy--as long as you get out and ride a bike, it's all good to me . Besides, there are a lot of nice older bikes in your area going for reasonable sums if you decide to upgrade. Just come visit us in Classic & Vintage and look at posts by members tolfan and Little Darwin for an idea...
