Haloooo, the Forum !

Howdy Do, been lurking for the past few weeks since I started riding again (after a 15+ layoff.) People here seem very amiable so I decided to join !
Wow, a LOT has changed in my absence from the cycling world...
I got fat.
I lost my "legs" (figuratively, not actually)
12spds have given way to 20spds and 15s have gone to 30 !!!!
A lot of younger cyclists have no concept of "Passing Courtesy"

When I lost the righteous path, I was riding 200-300 miles a week, now I'd be lucky to do that in a year. Luckily, I have a slave driver...er, I mean, lovely lady friend who has inspired me to hop back on the two-wheeled demons, and ride , boldly ride !
With any luck, I shan't be a Clydesdale for very long...

Watch your Line !

THanks !

At the time I quit riding, it was my Viner Road Record. It's in pieces ATM, deciding on a rebuild.
Right now , my Sirrus Triple is my main ride.
