Yet another retread

Hello from Manistee County, MI.

I am as of today a 53 y/o male who's getting back in the saddle again. My reasons are many and varied, not the least of whic is that I live in a really beautiful spot and want to get out and really see it. I also need to drop a few pounds, keep my B/P, glucose, and cholesterol under control. Doing this on a bike seems to make those tasks less odious.

I'm currently riding a cheapo bigbox store MTB but have started looking for an older steel-framed road bikesimilar to the old Ross that I foolishly gave away. (Or better yet, save my coins for a Surly Cross Check.)

I'll most likely be frequenting the 50+ and Clydesdale threads.

Thanks to all who contribute for your inspiration.


Kent

Welcome fellow, Michigander!

I can certainly relate to the health benefits of getting back in the saddle! I'm 46 and coming off a 10 year hiatus from cycling... They started health screenings here at work a couple of years ago... BP getting high... cholesterol creeping up there... etc. So like you I decided to get back in the saddle! After only 6 weeks I'm already feeling so much better! Just need to stay motivated! And while I don't hardly post here, I find that simply reading others post is a good source of inspiration!!!
