Hi

Hi
Iwould like to introduce myself.
I'm a 61 year old beginning rider, only the second bike I ever owned. The other was a three speed that never worked.
I was running to stay in shape after I retired but back problems forced me into something else and cycling seem to be the thing. I have been lurking on this forum for a long time and now have a few questions but will put them in the right section.
I call home the Fraser Valley in British Columbia, live on flat land now but lots of hills(mountians) close by. Learned to ride on a road with a 16% grade going home so never rode to far.

Hi postie,

Glad you decided to post, and nice to hear from another Canuck, there's getting to be quite a few of us here!

Pretty country! My son and I enjoyed our biking around the Hope/Harrison Lake area last summer.

Welcome to BikeForums. Glad you finally decided to stop "lurking" and join us. :thumbup:

I have several "older" friends who have given up running for similar reasons. Sorry to say that I haven't been able to persuade them to take up cycling.
