Hi from West Kentucky

My wife and started riding recently. Before that I had just ridden around town. But it hit that I was sometimes riding eight miles a day and it didn't seem like much. Now we ride 15 to 20 miles at a tim. I know that's not much for some of you but she's 61 and I'm 55 and neitehr of us is in good shape. We have quickly become addicted to riding.

Welcome toBike Forums.
You're doing fine. I'm almost 68 and started slow too. Now 12 years later I ride 30-40 miles a day on the rolling Terrain around Atlanta.
Stop by the 50+ forum and say hello to the other old timers.

Cool. We went riding in Paducah on Sunday. Rode around downtown and rode the Greenway. We live in Murray.
