    reallyoldracer

    I wanted to say hello to all of you!
    I chose my User ID as an instant recognition tool on joining this forum. I am an OLDER guy living in Aurora which is about 50 kilometres (about 30 miles for the metrically challenged) north of Toronto in Canada. I am quite far out of shape now, but I was in the best shape of my life at 40 when I competed in the first Masters' Games which were held in the Toronto area back in 1985. (I'm almost 69 now for the mathematically challenged).
    Back then, I trained for about a year doing a minimum of 50 miles a day 7 days a week. I was in better shape at 40 than I was in when I was wrestling in high school 5 nights a week. I even got down to 155 pounds which is what I weighed starting high school grade 9. Unfortunately, the years roll on. I'm healthy but way out of shape.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.
