Well, I just got sick and tired of watching everyone else ride and have fun around here....plus, I'm 49 going on the big 50 and, shall we say, not in the best shape in my life. I vow that by the time my birthday arrives that I will be in much better shape (notice that I didn't say "the best shape in my life"), and knocking down the miles!
Winter will be interesting, but I'll figure it out.
A long time ago, in a former life, when I lived in Boulder, I rode quite a bit. Looking forward to getting back at it!
