Thought I'd introduce myself. I'm an elementary school teacher. I've been riding bikes since I was a kid. I still have my Huffy that I got when I was 9 yrs old. I've been road riding since 1981 but I became serious in 95 when I finally found a small road bike for a 5'1 100 lb rider. I out grew my Cannondale (it's now my trainer bike) and 2 yrs ago bought an Aegis Swift. Last week I upgraded from Shimano 105 components to Campy 10 sp. It took me 20 years to find the perfect "little person" bike but I think I now have it.
I just got back from Georgetown, Ky. Every Memorial Day the Bluegrass Cycling Club, from Lexington, Ky. runs a bike ride called the Horsey Hundred. It's two days of cycling around the Kentucky horse farms. The roads are great with lots of rolling hills. I've been doing this ride since 1983 and I seem to enjoy it more than ever. This year seemed even more beautiful. The flowers were beautiful and there were lots of colts frollicking in the pastures.I guess with the events of the last year and all the rain and cold weather we've had here the day seemed especially sparkly.
I also mtn bike and am an avid skier.
I am also 50+ and will be retiring after next school year, yeah!
