Hello from N Ft Myers, Florida.

Been lurking around for a couple of months, thought I'd finally introduce myself. I've been riding bikes since I was old enough. First bike I actually won from a box of Captain Crunch cereal, had to wait a couple of years before I was big enough to ride it....

Rode BMX style bikes up until I was 16, about 1993 or so, then got my first mountain bike and have stuck with mountain bikes since then. I have been without a bike for the last 5 years, so am just getting back into riding. I have lost 15 pounds already. Been riding the roads around here, try and ride every spare moment I get but the weathe hasn't been cooperating much lately.

I only ride on the paved roads and hard packed gravel roads now so I put more road friendly tires on both of my bikes.

I currently have 2 bikes 1st one is a 1990 Trek 930. 2nd one is a Trek from the same era, according to the headbadge anyways, not sure what it is (has been resprayed). It is not lugged like my 930.

Thanks, getting some strong wind today from Irene, made the morning ride a little more difficult.
