    I should be out riding not on my computer

    Well I'm not riding so I thought I'd introduce myself. I'm living in NJ south NJ is what the say. I've bikes on and off for many years. Road bike now since I got tired of broken ribs from MTBing.

    I ride a 3 year old Madone 5.2. Just swapped out the triple chain ring for a double compact and switch the front and rear derailers as well.

    I shoot for 100 miles a week when the weather corporates. Sun-Sat last week I got in 104 and the week prior to that 148. My typical after work ride is 33 miles in about 105 minutes or so. Thankfully Jersey is flat. I guess those numbers place me in the B rider group from what I can tell.

    I also enjoy doing laps at Cooper River when a good pace line is running.

    I also enjoy backpacking, canoing, and some peak bagging.

    I'll try to stay out of the way till I see if this forum is for me.

    Hi,
    and welcome. I am just slugging back a 2nd coffee and waiting for it to warm up
    a bit. Then we're going out for a ride. I think you'll like it here, it can take some getting used to

    After a while you realize every zoo has it's critters and you enjoy the show.

    So true! About 99% of the members here are as friendly and helpful as can be, and the other 1% is a bunch of nutters.

    Have you climbed any of the Cascade mountains?

    Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !

    Yes one of the cascade mountains way back in the 70 I think it was called Glacier Peak. Most recent additions Mt Kilimanjaro, Mt Washington, and a fail attempt on Aconcagua. We go back to Argentina this December to finish that one.

    Glacier Peak is beautiful, and not very well known, even to the people who live here in Washington.
