I've been riding since I was about 10 (40 years), somewhat seriously for the last 32, mainly recreational, touring (West Coast US and in UK), and commuting. Finally took up mtn biking about 8 years ago. Haven't commuted (apart from combined car/bike commute) for the last 4 years. I've been mainly on the mountain bike since breaking my ankle badly in Jan 2013, in recovery mode. Mostly recovered now. New road bike on the way from a local custom bike and frame builder (Caletti), so I am here mainly to re-learn how to ride and maintain the stable of hobby horses.
