    Hello from Oklahoma

    Hello, My name is Gregg and I'm 53. I am from Moore, OK. and just getting back into bicycling. My road bike is blue and made by giant. It is a 26 speed and I took it for a 40 min. ride yesterday and I am alittle sore today. I am also retired from the Army National Guard after 26 1/2 yrs. and did a tour in Iraq 2004-2005. My goal is to lose alittle weight and try to ride long distance with other bicycle groups. I think for right now I need to take is slow and build up to that goal. Maybe next year I can ride in the redbud tour.

    Welcome to Bikeforums! I returned to riding when I was 52. It really can improve fitness. A 60 to 70 mile ride should be possible after 6 months of riding 3 times a week. Just increase the distances a few miles a week.

    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
