Hello
 
Hello,
I'm new to this forum/site but have been riding for 15 years.. Had a Paramount for years in 06 bought a Trek 5200 and currently have 7,600 miles on her and enjoying every ride I go on. Retired and winter in Mesa, AZ and during the summer travel the country in our Motorhome. My goal is to ride in all the major National and State Parks throughout our great country... so far so good!

Hello ED1, do you still have the Paramount? Have you ridden in Washington State yet?

o the Paramount got a little bent up under a Mesa Bus in December 2005 he cut me off in a Bike lane.
It was the same make and model Lance used in 1993... Sweet ride, all Campy

Welcome ED1
 
Welcome to bike forums.
I am envious Have not been on my bike since November. It is way to cold for me here in Nebraska.

I have only been road cycling for three years and LOVE it.

Can't wait for warm weather.

In the mean time these forums are great.
Best wishes.

East Hill,
I met a couple that ONLY stay in the Area just to ride the trail... They go back every year. I like to move around and check out as many areas as I can... It's really been enjoyable. The trail has a great website if you haven't visited it already. History etc.

Danolink,
Thanks for the welcome...

Make that 7,642 miles, as Ed and I did a nice 42 miler today here in Mesa. I am a newbie biker (just bought a Cannondale CAAD8) and he has been a huge help learning the ropes, GREAT guy (wife too). Welcome to the forum Ed!
