From biking nirvana

Hi,
i rediscovered biking in 2003, picking it up as a way to stay in shape outdoors for cross country skiing. Little did I envision it taking a big chunk of my time and energy! I started biking in college, taking 80+ mile rides up the Poudre Canyon, no helmet, no water bottle, on a 3 speed bike from the local Coast to Coast. i graduated to doing the same trip on a Stella which I still have and dearly love despite the fact it is way too large for me. School and postgraduate training as well as my job distracted me for a couple decades. At age 48 I decided I couldn't waste the beautiful summers of southern Wisconsin indoors at a gym and purchased a Terry Isis. The rest is history: first century at age 49, annual mileage climbing, and the pleasure of commuting when possible to work. And southern Wisconsin is a biker's nirvana. Flat roads if I wish; some ridiculously steep hills if i so desire, lots of paved, low traffic roads. Not to mention lots of other bikers. Now this forum, discovered on a hot, humid sick day....
