Hello from the US Capitol

I wanted to introduce myself as I have recently found this forum and have posted a few messages already. I'm a 43 year old guy trying to ride like a 20 year old. I have been riding and racing road bikes since I was a kid. I currently ride an Orbea XLR8R with Campy Record group for a road bike and a Bianchi MTB.

My goal is to attemot to not be a over 40 overweight guy riding an expensive race bike. Sometimes I fail at this but I sure train hard and sometimes the young guys draft on me and sometimes they smoke me. My wife is convinced she will put me in a retirement home in a European wheel chair with a helmet and bike jersey. How cool!!!

I hope to be moving with my lovely wife and Wheaten Terrier to Palm Beach Fl. by Jan. 2004 to continue my life in the sun and the fun. I look forward to enjoying this forum. See YA!!!!!

Welcome to forums, jchet. Hope to see more of your posts.

Forgive my ignorance, what's a Wheaton Terrier?

A Wheaton Terrier is a Irish dog that looks simular to a sheep dog mixed with an Airdale. Long flowing hair and a lot of fun for a medium size dog.

Thanks for the reply. I thought it might be one of those little hairy square nosed pups that yap all the time. Yours sounds much more interesting.
