    Young in my mind, not in my body

    Just this summer I've gotten back on the bike. I've been riding for sport since I was a Junior in HS. Family and work keep me pretty busy so I go on again off again. I can remember riding for miles and never having a ache or a pain, that's not the case anymore.

    I ride a Giant Rincon, older version. It's a hardtail with front suspension and disc brakes. I love the bike. It's a tank, the roads out here (I leave about an hour north of Palm Springs) are pretty rough, but getting better.

    I really looking to try a new ride, I think I would like the comfort of a trike. Yeah I know that seems like an old guy thing to says, but after twentyfive years or so of riding two wheels, I'm ready to wuss out a bit, if it keeps me on the road.

    Well that's it for me. Thanks for letting me post.

    Welcome to Bike Forums.
    I started road riding at age 65 years.
    Still going strong.

    There are some very nice trikes available today.
    It is all about fun.
    Ride safe

    Maybe its time to start bike commuting. That will give you a reason to ride every day.
