Hello from Albany, NY
Where are you from?
As the title states - Albany, NY and various other upstate NY towns before that.
What do you ride?
I ride a blue 2001 Raliegh C40 usually with an Adams trail-a-bike attached with my 6 year-old on the back. We've logged many miles on this setup and I am passing my love of cycling on to the next generation
When I ride alone, its usually on an unapologetically green 1976 Schwinn Varsity I restored a few years ago. I love this bike, but I hate the weight.
I have a few other 20+ year old Schwinns that I will eventually restore as well.
I am in the process of purchasing a newer road bike since I have increased my riding this year and would like to cover even more distance and my antique is not up for it. I found this forum while researching road bikes and will to use it as I purchase and maintain a bike with technology from this century.
How long have you been riding?
I have never stopped since I got my trike at age 3. I slowed down significantly this decade, but this year have stepped it up and I am back riding 20 mile runs on a regular basis.
Anything else we should know about you?
I like geeky stuff and bad movies.
I log my rides using iMapMyRide on my android phone and this is working out well.
My screen name refers to the glass floor weight that I cannot seem to crash through. Hopefully, more riding will help me lose another 25 lbs so I can be the weight I should be.
