My beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my 2014 Cannondale SuperSix EVO Hi-Mod Team bike
Welcome Jesse. Glad you found us.
When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. — Arthur Conan Doyle
Welcome to BF! I used to be in the middle of the pack, too---until one day I realized that being in the pack served no purpose that meant anything to me. I’ve now been riding solo for years since and enjoying it a lot more---my chosen routes, start time, speed, pit stops, no attitudes, egos or killer fashionistas to put up with, etc. Looking back with my legendary 20/20 hindsight, I wish I’d achieved the realization and made the move years earlier.
