    Greetings from SW Missouri!

    I am 55 years old. I haven't ridden in almost 40 years and then never rode much. My workplace recently became involved in National Bike Challenge. I felt compelled to give it a go, so I found a bike at a garage sale and started riding. I track my rides using MapMyRide and set a goal to ride every day. I started at a mile per day a month ago and am up to ten miles per day. My bike is a Schwinn 21 speed cruiser and is so slow that I have to pedal to go downhill!
    Needless to say, I am addicted! I look forward to getting off work so I can ride!
    Next step: get a better bike!
    Cheers!
    Steve

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

    Welcome to Bike Forums. Stop by the 50+ forum and say hello to the other old timers. I'm one of them. I too started riding again at 55. I'm now 69 and there are several others older than me. Have fun.

    To err is human. To moo is bovine.

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