Hello all, I just got my old Centurion back from my brother in law so that I could get back into cycling. He had it fixed up after it sat for years by his wood pile in the mountains only to let it sit around again for another year and a half. I last rode when I was 15, and from 12 to 15 I used to ride about 10 to 25 miles a day. Didn't know much about cycling, just loved to ride and did it as much as I could. I used to ride in charity rides all the time in my neighborhoods. Cars and a love of hot rods took me away from my bike, but I have discovered that I yearn to ride again.
I took the bike to Bicycle John's in Burbank to get it tuned up, and re-tired. I'm finding now that there is a lot more to cycling than just riding, and I am glad to have found this forum. I look forward to interacting and hopefully riding with some of you. I live in the vicinity of the L.A. Equestrian Center and Griffith Park. I will be building up mileage slowly as I am a recovering cig smoker !
