Hi folks--brand-spanking new member here, and sad to admit, even at my somewhat ripe age, still fairly new to cycling.
I don't have much experience cycling; I used to ride quite a bit back in the mid-'90s while I was stationed in Southern Turkey with the USAF, but then lost the bubble.
Last year I got sort of grounded from running with some lower back issues, so I thought I'd try getting back on a bike again.
Thanks to a really helpful LBS, my wife and I picked up a pair of Trek hybrids, and I've been riding pretty regularly down here--no major distances yet, but going out for an hour or so at a time.
Well, last week, my wife who is active duty Navy, found out we're going to be reassigned to Sicily, and I decided to work harder on cycling to help fill the time and learn more about the country. So this week I traded my 7.3FX in on a 2.3 road bike--should have it next week.
Look forward to listening and learning here!!
