    Love to ride

    Hi
    About two years ago I started riding a bike(again) to keep in shape. (I am 62 years old, retired USAF SMSGT) I lost over 45 pounds - want to lose another 15 pounds or so, by riding my bicycle.. Had a Magma bicycle I bought at Target. My son was riding a lot with me and thought I needed a better bike so he bought me a used Windsor Cliff 4500. It has been a great bicycle. I've rode it hundreds of miles never had any problems with it and in two years of riding only one flat. We mostly ride on paved bike trails here in Johnson County, Kansas. We rode our mountain bikes a couple times with a group of road bike riders and decided to buy road bikes. We bought matching Schwinn Le Tours. They were new but 2008 models. We like our Letours. The farthest we rode was from Olathe, Kansas to Lawrence, KS about 35 miles one way. I rode my mountain bike twice on a dirt singles trail in Lawrence - the first time (last year) I went over the handlebars three times -almost broke my ribs. I rode it again this year and did ok - no trips over the handlebars!
    Not looking forward to winter comming onand it getting dark early.
