    "Newbie" from Vermont

    Howdy, Bike Forum Folks,

    My name is Skip Toney which should explain the screen name. It has nothing to do with my having grown up in the sixties...

    I am a long time cyclist that hasn't ridden for a long time! I started riding for fitness when I was in my early twenties and continued to ride for fun, training and racing until my mid forties. Injuries stopped my bike love affair for many years until I re-discovered recumbents a few years ago. I am now 64 and though the body won't allow me to ride like the young folks anymore I still love being out and spinning the cranks a bit.

    I owned "The Bicycle Shop" in Sebring, FL in the late '80s and had a lot of fun!

    Some of the stable of bikes that are now gone include and a Raleigh Tour 14, Univega Super Strada (my favorite bike ever!), an early Klein Performance, custom 50th Anniversary Paramount (I was a Schwinn dealer), Schwinn Madison track bike (great in the flatlands of Florida!), Infinity LWB recumbent, Rans V-Squared fully-faired speed machine, Univega Altima Ultima mtb, the Trek R200 recumbent I now ride (and am converting to E-Bike commuter!) and countless shop bikes that I built up and sold just for the fun of it.

    I love every aspect of cycling from bike path cruising to adult trikes in the retirements homes, from fixies on the road and skinny racers to e-bikes. It's all good.

    This looks like a fun forum.

    Best to all. Peace, music and safe riding!

    Stoney

    Welcome Stoney. It looks like you can participate in many of the forums here and teach us quite a bit! You have a sweet stable of bikes.

    Thanks for the warm welcome from you nice folks. It is nice to be thinking about riding when the temperatures are in the single digits.
    I have a typo in my first post. The Univega mtb was an Alpina Ultima, not Altima. Senior moment...

    Thanks!

    Nice to meet you Skip. Welcome to bikeforums!

    Luckily for you, you happen to be humanoid and apparently from what I've read, that species never forgets how to ride a bike.
    You made an excellent choice to shed those extra pounds.
