I live in Seattle, am in early 50's, ride about 100 miles per week, weather permitting. Hoping to find some ride partners for the early spring and summer. About to purchase a new bike, trying to decide between Lightspeed Firenza, Cannondale and Specialized. 2 daugthers, one in college at Villanova, one graduated from Elon in North Carolina. My wife doesn't ride at all... maybe that's a good thing.
