I am new to the forums, obviuosly. Live in Lewisville, TX. Started cycling in '85 for exercise and recreation at the age of 13. By the next year, had ridden my first 3 century tours and was hopelessy addicted to cycling. Raced a few years as a junior, then switched over to mountain biking. Slowly but surely as I started working longer hours, cycling went by the wayside. Now, 22 years later (and a whole lot of pounds added to my frame) I am getting ready to purchase a new bike and get started riding the roads again.
