    Back in the saddle again!

    Hello All! 50 year old hoping to start bicycle commuting to work this spring due to rising gas prices and expanding waistline. Great site...so much to see! Have posted a pic of my bike in the "Show us your vintage mountain bikes!" thread that I hope to convert to a commuter.

    Welcome to Bike Forums.
    You can also read thru and post in the Commuting forum.
    And since you're from TN you can check out the Southeast Regional subforum. That's where you'll meet local folks.

    That puts you in very good company. Welcome, and yes, by all means, join in the 50+ crowd. Just be prepared to discuss things like your favorite pie and colonoscopies.
    Gearhubs demystified and other cool stuff.

    I honestly think they need to change the weight requirements. Because I'm an Athena.
