I am a returning rider and found the forum on a search. I am an older guy, 49, that raced 89-91. Took time off to finish collage and just did minor riding after that. I have been off the bike 2 1/2 years now and health had dropped off and weight went up. I started riding little over 3 weeks ago to get my fitness and health back. I have lost some weight, my blood pressure is coming down, and I am getting some fitness back. I am married and have a 8 yr old daughter. When I finish my rides, my daughter joins me and we do a 4 mile ride together I really enjoy the time with my daughter, helps spin out the latic too. Even bought the wife a Trek comfort bike last night so that she can ride with us.
Have a great day
