    Just found this group

    I recently retired and decided to get a road bike(Motobecane, Record) to ensue continued exercise. I ran for many years but have not been too active for the past two years. I rode a Royce Union off and on until this July when I got most of my Motobecane as a retirement gift. I average 100-125 miles a week now on local streets.

    Looking forward to learning and asking technical questions and contributing when and where I can.

    Just realized I've been here a while, but I don't know if the mods say welcome, or if anyone can.

    Anyway, welcome! It is by far the best cycling board on the web IMHO.
    '80's era Cannondale Police bike
    '97 Giant ATX 840 project bike (gave it to a nephew...)
    '01 Giant TCR-1 purebred road bike
    '03 Schwinn mongrel MTB

    Status quo is the mental bastion of the intellectually lethargic...

    Nice bikes there sir! And congratulations on your retirement. I am a long time commuter - ok, kinda hardcore kinda gurl so I have to say I love MOST about bicycling - (cept the heavy city traffic). Personally I'm looking into a mobocane to commute with myself. You would best find more info on your bikes and questions in the vintage forum in this place. This place is huge btw - lots to offer and yes, people do respond to your questions.

    Nice retirement gift!!! - and a royce union - very nice.

    And your mileage is totally commended!!

    Hey - BookFinder - anyone can give a great handshake!! AND point the person in the right direction! For several years I was the Publicity Director for my local bicycle club and I perused some of these forums looking for anyone in search of anything my area and would point them wherever (had many people searching for trail info, hotel info etc) - and so it was cool to help anyone out. And so I try to continue now.

    Plus - it's just nice to acknowledge new people! kudos to you too!!
