From the heart of the Great Basin...
Actually from the left shoulder of the Great Basin, near Reno, Nev. (motto: More than slot machines, but less than an educational system). I'm a veteran rider (30+ years on the road, close to 20 as an occasional mountain biker), but took most of a year off because of some family and work issues. Gained 20 pounds, lost most of my fitness, and I'm struggling back. Kids are in college now, so I have no money but plenty of time, and I'm going to spend 20-30 hours a week of it on the bike until the snow flies.
As a longtime rider, I get to give a piece of advice to newbies: GET RID OF THOSE BLACK CLOTHES. It's a wonder you guys don't get run down by the hundreds.
