Hello from northern Utah

I'm a 73 year old rider with about 12 years under my tires, mostly road biking doing charity rides, with almost daily (during good weather) paved trail rides on the hybrid. Some heart issues started my riding fever and it will not let up. Now for some warmer weather.

We do have some great scenery here, but winters can really slow down the riding. I'm planning on a trip to Sisters OR in June to ride McKenzie pass and see some really great scenery, can't wait.
