I'm a newbie here but not new to 'cycling. I've been back riding for about a year after a 6 or 7 year layoff due to my wife's cancer treatments and, thankfully recovery. Live in Maryville, Tennessee within sight of the Smoky Mountains. Great riding country (if you don't mind an occasional redneck in a pickup). Ride a Trek 7.2 FX and my newly purchased Cannondale CAAD9 R6. I'm 66 so I'll definitely be subscribing to the 50+ forum. Great info here!
