Hello from Connecticut

Hi Everyone, I just joined

I just started cycling again after a 25 year break. Why did I stop! I recently purchased a Specialized Roubaix and boy have bikes changed. I have only done a few short rides as my legs are not up to long rides yet. I am hooked up with Strava and am going to ride as much as family life/weather will permit. I feel so much better for the few miles I have done. I have raised my heart rate to 179 and I feel so good when I get home. I hope to ride through the winter when there is no snow on the ground

Thrilled to be part of the forum,

Welcome, Jamie. Look forward to hearing of your journeys.
If at first you don't succeed, Skydiving is not the sport for you!
