Due to personal health reasons, I have not ridden for many years and I miss it very much. My personal bike collection is down to my last two favorite gems and I am conflicted about how to dispose of them. I will discuss them in a more appropriate thread. For now, it feels nice to be among a group of people who share the love of bike riding and I look forward to my exchanges with all of you. First I must learn how to use this forum, so I ask for your patience. I am 72 years old and live in the Washington, DC area.
