    Retired military (USAF) just north of San Antonio, recently turned 60 and just trying to stay in shape (ran regularly while on active duty, including several marathons). Been walking 4-6 miles, 5 days a week and would like to start biking to pick up the pace after seeing quite a few cyclists on base blow by me...<G>. Last bike was a Raleigh 10 speed back in the late 70s when stationed in the UK. Have spent the past 2 weeks checking out local bike shops and reading the threads here. Really have learned a lot from you all and the bike shop folks - they have been very friendly/helpful. Looking for a quality hybrid (leaning towards a Trek 7200/7300 or 7.2/7.3FX) to ride on base roads and see where that takes me.....

    Welcome Don to Bike Forums.
    New bikes are fun. Road bike is the way to ride.

    Hopefully, I'll work my way up to a road bike in the future.....just need to make a decision on a bike so I can start riding.... Buying process is not easy with so much to choose from and so much to learn....

    Appreciate you taking the time to welcome all us "newbies" to the forum.....
