newbie here on Feb 20 2013

Hi

Have been 10+ years off the bike (steel Trek 500) but the Armstrong saga got me interested again. (so he's good for that anyway). Started riding (no racing, just centuries) in the late '70s. Favorite cyclists: Mark Pringle, George Mount, Wayne Stetina, Alexi Grewal, Alan Mccormack, Sue Novara Reber and currently active Taylor Phinney.

Hey there.
Used to live in Amarillo and Dallas. Rode centuries around there back in the '80s.
