Hello from Western Massachusetts. I rediscovered cycling in me early 30's and avg. 3,300 mi a year up till my late 50's. a new job cut my ridding to around a 1,000 mi. a year. Starting a new job hope too have more time for the bike now.Western MA. is a great place to cycle (Pioneer Valley) Ride North or South flat. Ride East or West climb. Hundreds of miles of back roads. For Mt. bikers many fire roads and trails. For road ridding I ride a Pinarello,off road a Litespeed.When I ride with wife we ride a Rans Tandem Screamer. We toured on a upright tandem till She had back problems. We have over 30,000 mi as a tandem team,A wounderful part of our marriage. When she rides alone she's on a tadpole trike.
