HeyNow!

Greeting fellow cyclists!

I just wanted to say hello, this is a cool forum and I have been lurking for a few months and felt like it was time to say yo wassup!

I am 46 years old and a lifelong cyclist. I weigh about 190 now having dropped down from about 205 last xmass and I hope to get down to about 175 for next years bike season. I ride for fun, fitness and the zen of doing it, I like to go fast!.

This year since april (at the end of xc ski season)I have been riding between 150-250 miles a week on a Kona Jake the Snake cross bike set up mostly for the road. Im doing my first century of the year in a couple weeks. I live in western mass, amherst, and love to ride as much as I can. I love hills both ways and am somewhat competitive out on the road. I like to challenge myself and have always enjoyed endurance sports and outdoor stuff in general.

I am currently trying to scrape together enough cash to get a really good road bike for next year. I really like the looks of Lynsky and Serotta Ti bikes and hope to be able to be on one soon.

I hope everyone is well and enjoying a fantastic fall riding season.

Peace

Edward; aka Red Lanterne

Western Mass is a great place to ride, fall days are spectacular and we have a great variety of roads and back country trails to ride on. there is a large cycling community out here. The only draw back is winter, but then its time for back country skiing!

Sounds like the place to be! Winter just doubles the fun of riding a bike here in NE. We get enough to make the streets really slushy and gross after they are plowed, but not so much where its impossible to ride. Makes for good drifting on a fixed. Gives the local drivers a hard time though.
