Probably 55 years since I've straddled a 2 wheeler and 2 days ago I bought a Hybrid at Erik's. I've done about 20 miles and, so far, my name hasn't shown up in the obits. I've kept in reasonable shape with free weights at Bally's and peddling a Catrike 3 wheel recumbent. I want to be able to do 20 miles on local streets without walking it up the hills and maybe before the snow flies I'll be there. I'll be looking for advice and probably a little sympathy.
