I miss my bike

Hi!
I'm new here but not new to cycling.
I've been riding bikes since...well, almost as soon as I could walk
And even before that, my parents would pull my sister and I along in little trailers.
I got my first road bike the summer after 5th grade year, which has since been converted into a time trial bike. I started out riding marathons and local club rides.
After freshman year I sort of took a haitus from cycling...I kept it up i just didn't do it seriously.
But now I'm 17...I miss it So thats it.
I mostly do road cycling and soemtimes a tandem with my sister or a friend.
Apart from cycling i like to write and read and I'm a beekeeper.
Nice to meet everyone!

Welcome to the forums!

There are some interesting forums that may help you get motivated to get back on the road...

With your beekeeping, the movie "The Secret Life of Bees" popped into my mind. Is this how you make your living, or is it a hobby?

I wish I could have discovered road biking as soon as you did. In my foolish youngness, when I was in fifth grade I thought road bikes looked dorky as opposed to the cool, dual suspension TWENTY ONE SPEED (!) mountain bikes! Not dissing mountain bikes at all; they have their niche, but now that I know the difference I look back and have to say "duh" to myself. And it wasn't until May of this year, now that I'm 20 years old, that I got addicted to such road awesomeness.

Out of curiosity: why a funeral home at 17 o_O?

But anyhow, welcome to the BF.

haha! Well the funeral home is a job...and you have to admit its a lot more interseting than flipping burgers at McDonalds!
Actually, I plan on being a funeral director when I grow up...I'm not at all a morbid person, but its just my thing

Don't let anyone give you a hard time over working at a funeral home. If you are going to be an embalmer, then you will make GOOD money.
