Hi biker folk.
My dad turned me on to this site -- he is a 65 yr old avid biker -- and I quickly concluded that there probably wasn't a better group of people to start chatting with on the WEB.
I am a post 40 male who quit smoking on 4/20; live within a stones throw (1/2 mile) of an incredible paved trail system; barring snow cover, ride year round; and recently began to commute the 25 miles to work a minimum of three days per week. I also ride several 50's on top of the commutes and hope to increase both: the frequency of the commutes and the distances of the other rides.
I own three bikes: road, hybrid and mountain. The road bike gets the most attention; it's the commuter. The hybrid is my shopper, whereas the mountain is my all terrain animal.
Goals: more centuries, faster commuting, clear lungs, fun...
