Hello to all. My wife and I are from the Long Beach/San Pedro area of So. Cal. I haven't been riding at all for about 30 years and it's time to get back into shape. I am a somewhat retired member of the PGA and golf has taken up my life for too long. We live in Selma, Oregon (about 25 miles from Grants Pass). My wife has a Schwinn mtb compliments of our kids and I just bought a nice used Giant OCR Two and a used KHS mtb. I am sure there is nothing like a new bike, but I love tinkering with the Giant and KHS and getting them to be smooth as possible (and they are). Thanks for the Forum and to the contributors. Their wealth of information will be greatly used.
BTW: Anyone have recommendations for riding in the So. Oregon area?
My beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my 2014 Cannondale SuperSix EVO Hi-Mod Team bike
Welcome to BF. I'll be 64 in a few weeks. There are several others here in their late 60s and a few in their 70s. Stop by the 50+ forum and introduce yourself.
When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. — Arthur Conan Doyle
i hope to be able to spin at age 70....good for you! i ride with a friend who is age 77. we went 15 miles in one hr last sunday, about 35 miles the sunday before, contemplating self-contain x-USA tour in 2010 (he is an ex/tri-athlete)! get back into cycling slowly and surely, keep your game!
