Old Raleigh cycler
Just got my Raleigh Carlton Gran Sport today, a '73 or '74 model. It's in great shape. I'm looking to develop some old forgotten muscles and hopefully dump the cigs I've been puffing on for waaaay too long. I got my intro into good touring and racing bikes back in the mid 60's and was hooked for ten or fifteen years. Married with children changes your priorities sometimes, though.
Anyway, this is a great bike, light as a feather and I've only fallen off once today. I've got some endurance that needs building. I went three times around the block and I thought I would be wearing a toe-tag by the time I got to my driveway.
I want to start easy. If anyone has any suggestions about how to start this process I'm open to suggestions (of course quitting the cigs is a given, I know).
