My name is Pete (duh) and I live here , I'm 54 years old and got back into riding a year ago last January.
I commute to work four days a week. The ride is two and a half miles one way, mostly down hill going to work and mostly uphill coming back home. It was a challenge at first, but, I'm getting better and better as time goes on.
My bike is a Raleigh Venture 3.0 With Atomic Aluminum (Envy me)!
Needless to say... I'm a Fred.
I'm having fun on my bike and like to ride every day no matter the weather. Head winds are another story though.
