Greetings from Central California

Hello fellow nuts! After a recent awakening to proper nutrition and re-dedication to physical fitness, I climbed back onto my bicycle and ventured out beyond the city limits, a place it hasn't been in well over ten years.

I bought my bike, a Schwinn Peloton, for a 25th birthday present to myself. It will be twenty-five years old next month. It's always been a joy to ride and has never left me anywhere, but I've gotten bit by the bug to move to a newer mount. So, as all I can afford to do right now is shopping and research, I've started by reading these forums. Lots of good info here and I appreciate having the opportunity to learn about this pastime.

I'm not very knowledgeable on the newer equipment or heavy into high-level competition, so I doubt I'll have much to contribute, but I like riding and I'll be lurking around, trying to gain enlightenment along the way....

25+25=50
Sounds like you're a good prospect to join us in the 50+ forum.
Be sure to post pics of the Peloton and your new bike.

Thank you!
There's a 50+ forum? I'd be honored to join, just as soon as I qualify. Still waiting for my invite from the senior PGA Tour.

Will do, as soon as I come up with some attractive background to make it look better and then find, buy and build a new-to-me bike.
