So, I'm 61 and haven't been on a (real) bike in decades. However, I'm hooked up with about 25 teenagers in my church who are avid bikers and I 'threatened' to ride with them if they agreed to a trip. So, they agreed and I'm the proud owner of a new Trek 2.3 and a new Brooks saddle that I'm breaking in. (My initial reason for joining Bikeforums is to get some hints on breaking the saddle in a LITTLE faster!).
I'm in Indianapolis and our trip will visit 19 covered bridges in the rural west part of the state, camping out (and waterskiing) at a stake park in the evenings. My break-in trip of 26 miles last Saturday on rural roads was more than enjoyable. Looking forward to a long association with my new hobby.

Welcome to BF.
61? I'm 64. Stop by the 50+ forum and say hello to the "old farts".
When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. — Arthur Conan Doyle
