hello from wisconsin...

hello every one...
my name is chuck and i'm from sheboygan wi {right by the "great lake michigan** i started riding last year, after many years of the martial arts tearing up my knees i needed a form of exersise that was better on my knees..[WEIGHT LIFTING MADE THEM WORSE**....

i got into winter riding this winter and was totaly amazed on how much fun and exelerating that was..went 11 miles at a temp of 6 degrees...got done and felt like i was 16 again..

i try and ride every other day {10 -15 miles**, and am looking to do much longer rides as the endurance comes. i smoked for 30 years and quit 2 years ago, i find biking realy helps get my lungs, more than anything i was doing before.

well thats about it for now, looking forward to chatting with you guys , and gals...
