Hello from sunny....ahh, soggy So Cal

Just discovered this forum a few days ago. I especially like the 50+ category. It's fun to read about and relate to other old fogey cyclists like myself (61). Hope I can get some good info and advice here. I live in the mountains of southern Calif. and enjoy both mountain and road biking. But lately, I've been slacking off (now I can really blame it on the weather). So hopefully, participating in this forum will increase my motivation to ride more often. I suppose I could use this to obsess over some of the aches, pains and medical problems we all acquire as we get older. But then, I would rather talk about doing a century under 5 hrs - not that I ever will mind you, but it's fun to think about. Now, if I can only find a comfortable saddle.....

Welcome.

Being also from the mountains of So Cal, just where are you from?

I was raised for several years in the Cleveland National Forest, east of San Diego.

I live in Wrightwood about 30 miles northwest of San Bernardino off the Cajon Pass. If you have ever gone to Vegas via the I 15, you would have passed the turn off (Hwy138) to Wrightwood. A beautiful place to ride when there's not 2-3 ft of snow on the ground. Summer's are great though for both road and mountain biking, just have to love climbing! If I want a fairly flat ride, I usually drive down to the valley below (Rancho Cucamonga) and start there. But, I'm still trying to figure out how to get chains on bike tires (mountain knobbies don't work very well on black ice).

Velcommen hibiker43.

I'm only 55 myself so take this youngsters advice with a grain of salt

After trying many I have found the Selle Italia ProLink saddle the most comfortable for me. But of course a saddle is a very personal choice. if you have a good lbs take your bike there and have them set you up with some different saddles to try.

I know how important comfort has become at my tender age, so I can only imagine how important it is at your age - he he.
