    Road biking in southern Georgia

    Greetings,

    There are no records to mention, no accomplishments on an international scale, but I do luv to get on the pedals each day. I own and ride several bikes, I am old and retired, thus I can afford to spend my money on me. My latest bike is a new Mercier Draco AL, which I dearly love. I ride more upright than most riders thus my bikes are 2CM to 3CM larger than the normal 6' rider. I went through 3-4 bike sizes before I finally settled on a size that fit me and how I think a bike should feel. I think the greatest change in biking has been the tires. There is nothing wrong with the older steel framed bikes and who needs all the gears to road ride. The greatest feeling in the world is the high I get when in a group of good riders, helping to push and pull the pace. YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH GO FOR IT>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    There are no "old" people here. Cycling keeps us young. Heck, I'm just a kid of 59.
