I have a similar story to many others here, I guess. I'm 59 years old and live in the Pittsburgh area. I biked as a kid and then got away from it but about 7 years ago started riding again on bike trails for fitness. 3 (or so) years ago a friend introduced me to road riding and I fell in love. Last year I did my first multi-day tours, one supported and one not, and completed my first century. I'm now doing about 2000 miles a year and wishing I had time to do more. Wonderful sport.
