Howdy! Bike Forum Newbie Here

Howdy, My name is Chris, I am from Southern California. I was into riding when I was younger, like 15 years ago. Rode a lot as a teen then got back into to it in my 30s and rode for many years. Mostly 100 Mile + rides for Charities. But mostly I just loved to ride. Then life got in the way. Now at 52 I am riding again, started in May I got a 2011 Diamond Back Outlook, rode with the HUGE Mountain Bike tires for months just to get the workout and to get back into shape. I recently put 1.5 tires on it, High Breaad type. I am doing a 4.13 minute mile and averaging 13.5mph on a 15 mile ride. I am planning on this weekend doing a 50 mile ride just to do it. I am a firm believer in Muscle memory as I think I proved that to myself in the last few months getting back into riding, I am doing this 50 mile ride to show myself I can still do it and to show my wife I won't have a heart attack in the process. If I do as well as I hope to on this 50 miler I will consider century ride next spring.

Welcome to BF Datsun NUT! My riding career is similar to yours. Life and work and wives and kids need our attention. Its good to get riding again. I'm 58 now and enjoy fat tires first, but the community of a century is a lot of fun.
