    New Chicken in Town

    Howdy Folks,
    With the youngest one now beyond my soccer coaching skills I decided that it was time to do a little fitness. I was riding centuries in the late 80's up to 1992 and decided to sign up for the MS150 (2007), without owning a bike nor riding for the past 15 years.

    I have a 2007 Specialized Roubaix Expert Comp. The bike is a lot better than I am, man I'm outta shape

    Welcome Aboard, Chicken! Be sure to check out the Texas Action in the regional forums!
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Hello chicken, I hope that user name does not refer to you being afraid to get out on the road with that fast, very fast, Roubaix .

    The Texas regional forum is a very busy place...lot of good riding down there (if you can stand the heat, that is).

    Welcome to BF!

    No excuses ! There are cameras small enough to do the job nowadays. A few photos of the bikes on your website would be excellent .
