Hi racers, riders, fitness buffs. I'm now in this forum because my brother just ordered a 2014 Specialized Allez Race. I have a couple of bikes in my stable I used to ride with a passion for years. Time has past and I've been working crazy hours and out of state sometimes, I just got derailed in my riding direction I had when iI was younger. In 1987 I bought my first bike and went on a 5 year campaign of riding everyday. I couldn't get enough. I was riding by myself or with one or two companions for up to 30 miles a day for minimum 5 days a week. Sometimes a half century. I've done two full centuries but it was too much of a ride plus going to work the next day.lol . I hope I can find that road again with future rides again. ( When I get back into the groove again I'm going to look into a new ride to freshen my stride.) Wish me luck !!
