New Paltz NY Greetings

I'm back to cycling after taking time for career and family; good to find a forum where I can ask questions...
I have a circa 1988 Bianchi Alante I bought new and kept up, but I'm hearing from the Bike Experts that, just 'coz it's "old" I should deep-six it for something new.
I want to start riding greater distances- opinions? Thanks for the soapbox!

Hey there Wally,

Having the 1988 Bianchi makes you a natural for Classic & Vintage. Wanting to ride greater distances - Long Distance. Both have a lot of people who were away from riding and came back to it after many years. It's almost an epidemic.

Cheers,

Z

Come over to C & V and hang with us. We will be able to convince you that there's nothing wrong with the Alante.

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