Hello everyone. Or more appropriately, Hi Ya'll.
I'm from extreme Western Kentucky. Paducah to be exact. Rode a bike just a little bit back in the mid 70's on a Nishiki road bike. Started very casually again in July of 2012 on a Nishiki "comfort" bike. Got hooked big time! Bought a 2011 Trek/GF Kaitai and have started commuting to work. It's only 3mi each way, but I have really enjoyed it. Lost 20 lbs and feel terrific. The wife and I ride some short weekend trips (less than 20 mi.) and we hope to extend those a bit.
I feel very much the newbie and needed a place to ask some questions and try to learn some about bikes.
