Hello all. I am 58, live on Capitol Hill in DC and have recently found myself falling into a potential cycling addiction. I rode like a maniac as a kid but rarely during my working years. My wife and I always kept bikes in the garage but only used them to ride down to the mall. Last year we took a few longer trips on the C&O towpath and caught a touch of the bug. In May we took a VBT tour to Italy with some friends and got heavily infected. Now we are biking regularly. I'm looking forward to picking your brains about equipment, techniques, trails etc.
