Newby from Indiana!
3 years ago, @ 40, I gave up smoking after 25 years and took up Mtn. Biking, since MTB clearly wasn't taking enough of my income I took up road biking also. This year I plan to get more serious about my performance on and off the road.
I have three bikes:
'72 Raleigh Supercourse (salvaged for a couple thousand road miles, now a fixed gear!)
'99 Specialized Stumpjumper - light and agile at 10 years old !
'08 LeMond Tourmalet , my first serious road bike purchased July '09
Besides cycling, I play guitar and sing in a local band and watch movies with my wife and our daughter. Life is pretty chill out here in the corn ...
