Just getting back to cycling from, well, those crappy old bikes of my youth. I'm now 36, married, father, and trying to lose 40lbs (reading Heft on Wheels last year provided a big dose of inspiration). Riding a Trek 1000. Good bike for the money, but I think I'll be ready to upgrade the Sora group by spring. My other inspiration is my Dad. He's 60+ years old and can ride rings around me right now. My goal is to ride the Hilly Hunderd in southern Indiana with him in October (problem is; I can barely do a flat 20, much less a hilly hundred).
