Hi Carl, welcome to BF, from another 50+ rider, it sounds as if no motivation is necessary for your riding. Drop in at the 50+ forum and join in with the gang, we cover the entire spectrum of riding ability and bicycle disciplines there. the Specialized Allez Elite is a good roadie, very well engineered bike, I'm an a Cannondale CAAD10 4, very similar set up and frame materials. The Southeast Regional Forum will have others in your area that are looking for rides and such, if you want to add to your club riding or find routes and events. The clipless pedals are a personal preference that only you can decide, 10 Wheels loves the clips and quills, Ive evolved from quills to the SPD-SL type now, different strokes for different folks. Glad to have you join in with us here.

I did not choose to have Parkinson's Disease, but I can choose to not allow it to control my life. Its all up to me to overcome the trials, adapt and overcome!
