My sentiments exactly. Didn't know about the cliff. I'm adjusting to becoming one speed. Decades of instinct take over when there's a rider in front of me and I reflexively want to catch him. Then I pay for it after I get home
You should try a 'bent. It's fast on the flats. Good for the ego!
PS: Good to hear from you Pete!!!
I never thought I'd go slower, especially uphills, because of how slow I already was, especially on uphills.
I was wrong.
Buy I'm still going, damn it.

I just woke up and crawled from under my rock. Like everyone else, life seems to take a detour from our passion and what we enjoy most. I'm still in the middle of a life changing event that really takes out the will to go out and ride like I used to. But I will be back :-) for sure.
