Hello form BC

I Recently returned to bike riding after a off and on love affair with it. I was a very heavy road bike user in the early 80's and rode a old Norco Avanti 12 speed road bike. Currently i have been riding a Rocky Mnt MB around a lot of trails in the Maple Ridge area. I'm starting to feel the itch to get another road bike or a used touring bike. I'm moving to Victoria for the winter and would really like to have a touring bike while there. I'm hoping to find something usefull on a used site, maybe a gem in the rough that won't break me or my bank

It feels good to be riding again and it's less painful than all the running i was doing

Welcome to BF. Yes it does feel good to ride. And running is evil.
