gulfdaddy new to forums

Howdy Yall, I am 58, retired and just getting back into bicking after a long lay off. I have been running for years but the back and knees have told me to start riding again. I followed a friend's advice and tried a recumbent to make it easy on my back. I started by borrowing a Bike-E and then bought a '06 model Bacchetta Giro and started putting on some miles. Good for weight loss for sure. The bent bike is ok so far but the other day I met a man with too much money and and not enought garage space. He sold me a Bianchi Giro with 28 miles on it for a very very modest sum. Now I am giving the road bike a shot also. The first thing I noticed is that some different muscles are used. It sure is lite and rolls sweet.
I want to take my hat off to the folks on the over 50 forum. Lots of motivation found there.

See you on the road, Gulfdaddy

Hi gulfdaddy, it looks as if you have been checking out various forums around the board and been enjoying yourself almost too much . Don't forget to check out the regional forums--there's one just for Texas!

Welcome to BF!
