    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....

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    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.
    Be sure to post pics of the Peloton and your new bike.
    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.
