New To Forum

Just wanted to say hello to everyone. I am new to the Bike Forum.

As far as intorductions, I live and ride in west-central Indiana, 15 miles from IL line. I am an IL native ... thus the name "oldillini" ... displaced to IN for career purposes.

I am not new to riding just new again. 10-12 years ago I was riding 130-150 miles weekly, but when my youngest daughter was diagnosed with a rare disease I focused my energy elsewhere. The girls are now in college and I am back in the saddle.

I ride a 15 year old Raleigh road bike. Nothing fancy but it works for my 60-75 miles a week. Once tuition payments are over I hope to get a newer set of wheels.

I look forward to joining in when possible and hope all your rides are safe!

Mark

WELCOME!!!!!!!!!
I've also got an older bike, a Schwinn --probably 30 yrs old-- that gets me where I want to go. I converted it from a five to 12 speed. Is more comfortable than my newer lighter bikes and great for just riding around.
Anyway, glad you found your way here.

Ross ...

I am a novice ... and may not be able to hang with you young guys. But am willing to give it a spin.

LOL! thats fine, I'll be the first on to tell you that I'm new as well. I have only been biking for 3 months on and I'm learning all the time. Come spring I'll be all hardcore about training so i can do well in the college season, but their are enough fun rides that IN has for us bikers. and it is nice to ride in a group sometimes
