Hello from Dearborn Heights

Hello everybody!

Sorta new to cycling (getting back into it after a "few" years off). I really started cycling more this year because my wife is now riding and my son is big enough to ride in the trailer.

My bikes:
2002 Schwinn Sierra GS (comfort / Hybrid)
1989 Raliegh Technium 420 (Still in the process of rebuilding).

Cycling with the boy

I absolutely love riding with my son. He's got a little Fisher Price MP3 player that he listens to while we're rolling along. And he "tells" me when I'm not going fast enough for his liking. Right now we only have a Step2 trailer, but I'm ordering a Burley Honey Bee at the end of the session.

I've have to sneak out on Sunday mornings for my solo ride, else he has a complete fit.

Right now I'm using my 2001 Schwinn Sierra GS (although it's going to the LBS tonight for issue dev. after my original post). I'm currently rebuilding a 1989 Raliegh Technium 420.
