Greetings from (hot) North Texas

Howdy all! Glad to be with everybody on this forum. It looks like you have just about everything covered here.

Started biking March of this year on a Trek 7.1 hybrid. Max mileage has been been 55. Finally figured out if I want to do much more than that I need to get on a better bike. Looking at a few different Specialized models (Roubiax Compact, Elite Compact).

Some day I want to be able to do a century. (At 52 years old, the sooner the better )

Welcome Ely to Bike Forums.
Took me 5 months for a century.
Started road riding at age 65.
Ride slow.

Hi Ely, and welcome to Bike Forums! We have a hybrid section, I'm hoping to see you there. Whatever you do, keep that hybrid - it's a nice change of pace after you get your new bike. Good luck on the century!
