Thanks for the welcome, East Hill. I'm mostly a road rider now. Not competitive much, just like to enjoy what wildlife I can see. I've hit the trials a few times and enjoy that too. Rode across the United States last year. I'm comfortable riding alone, with an organized group, or just about any combination of people and bicycles.
I've been on bicycles long enough that I knew some vintage bikes personally. My first new bicycle was from Sears and it had three speeds. There have been steel, aluminum, and carbon bikes in my stable at one time or another. Currently riding a TREK Pilot.
