New Old Rider Back in the Game - Hi

I'm a mature and very active gal and wanted to take riding up again following a decade layoff - just recreational but serious enough that I'm willing to commit 3-4 days a week.

Saw and used "Bike Forums" extensively in selecting my a new bike and digs (come on now, bikes are like shoes and a girl never has enough), as my old one was stolen a few years ago out of a locked, screened patio and yard.

Anyway, I'm really pleased to be a part of this forum and it was quite helpful as I obsessed over purchasing a new bike - settled on the 2011 Marin Highway One and dying for it to arrive

I live in LA, co-own a small consulting practice, travel a bit and missed bicycling so much as a compliment to Pilates that . . . I'm Back, Jack!

Take good care everyone,

Rachel

Hi - I'm strictly recreational but love the wind and the great feeling of spinning along, lost in the music of the rider's high as the miles drift by. I've got a ways to go to get back into it, but this weekend did do two short rides: ~ 35 min and and hour. My bike seat and derrière are still negotiating the comfort zone. :-) Hoping to be back in the full swing of things by Xmas . . . and since we have great weather in LA, I'm hoping December is full of nice rides along the Pacific.

I'll check out the 50+ forum - thanks

Welcome to BF and welcome back to cycling. I looked up the Marin Highway One and that's a nice looking bike. Congrats.
