Hello from Louisville!

Hello everybody,

I am now using cycling as my main exercise after many years of running. I'm in my mid-50's and feel like my conditioning is making a comeback and I really enjoy being out. I have a Trek Hybrid and a Giant road bike. I've become a fan of racing after watching the Tour for a few years. I joined here so I can continue to broaden my knowledge about cycling (while slowing down the broadening of my waistline ).

This seems to be a VERY active website and I'm glad I found it.

Welcome to Bike Forums. Got pics of the bikes?

This is like pictures of your babies. I've had the Trek since July 1999 (gee, what happened then? ) First decent bike I had ever owned. Then a few years ago, I wanted to try a road bike and got the OCR 1.

Welcome to BikeForums!

I'm in Louisville as well. I often join a laid back group ride that leaves from Vic's Classic Bikes at 921 Baxter Ave on Sundays around 9:30a. Happy riding!

Thanks for the welcome guys!
Hey Colonel Lloyd, its neat seeing another Louisvillian. I'm a member of LBC, but still haven't went on a group ride. Next year I am vowing to get out more with others. I got to admit I enjoy being out by myself.

I'll definitely be checking out the over 50 group here as well as the clydesdales. I'm a good size guy. Some would call it fat, I prefer big boned.
