    Hello everyone...Just getting back into Cycling, after 20 years.

    Just started back cycling after a 20 year break. Bought a Motive highridge at a yard sale
    about 2 and1/2 years ago, 15.00 dollars, well after probably 250.00 dollars in upgrading
    parts and so fourth I had my bike, Short trips to the store everyday, 1 mile or so, sometimes
    3 or 4 times a day with a back pack, four kids go though food fast (laugh)..Up graded my bike
    to a nice Motobecane disk brakes, rack, more of a mountain bike with a hard tail though..Well
    I was weighing 240 LBS at the beginning, after a couple years dropped to 180 LBS. All my friends were amazed, now I'm riding a Schwinn Trailways (long story), but love it, up to 40
    miles at a time, mostly in the 15 to 20 mile range though, road and hard packed trails..I'm
    no newbie to bike commuting though, from my early twenty's to late twenty's I commuted
    to two jobs a day, worked at a LBS and a restaurant, I have seen my share of wind, rain, cold,
    night time riding, (theres some stories). I'm 47 now and feel thirty again, so glad I stopped
    at that yard sale, (Laugh).....Anyway Hello everyone!

    So, sounds like you may want to visit our Clydesdale and Athena section, for one place. We have a bunch of people there that are bigger than the average roadie, or have been on long hiatus from the sport, etc. It's a friendly and welcoming bunch, other than that grouchy old Admin, Tom Stormcrowe. He's a curmudgeon.

    We have lots of topical venues, actually, so welcome to the site.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.
