    Newbie in Cleburne

    Howdy Guys and Gals! I am newbie in that I am getting back into cycling after about a 8 year hiatus. I rode a lot durning my childhood from 8 until about 18 and then went to college and had interest that did not include cycling. I logged lots and lots of miles previous. I just went and picked up my new bike tonight that I found from someone on craigslist. I got a carbon fiber bike which is incredible how the technology has changed so much in so little time. I am starting to commute back and forth to work and looking for some folks to ride with recreationally/competitively. Cycling was absolutely a passion of mine years back and looking forward to conversing with everyone and hopefully meeting some folks to ride with in my area and/or Fort Worth etc. Anyway thought I would introduce myself and welcome anyone that is looking for a training buddy that is not up to speed yet but looking to get that way sooner rather than later with a 30 mile commute round trip it shouldn't be too long before I am up to shape. Have a great one and happy trails!

    Put the hammer down,
    Brad

    Got out and rode today. Good to be back in the saddle. I rode out past the lake in Cleburne but looking forward to hopefully riding with some of you guys soon. Got 14.9 miles before dark in and averaged about 14 mph. I was pleased after so much time off. Ready to get back in the swing and ride with some groups so not so mundane alone

    FWBA does quite a few group rides out in that area. They are a good club and usually have a good range of fitness levels at their rides.
    May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view.
    May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. -Edward Abbey

    I work in Cleburne and live in Keene. If you need someone to ride with let me know. There is a pretty good size group in the Keene that meets, I have forgotten when but I know Sunday morning for sure. They're are pretty fast, well fast for me.

    Welcome back to cycling! My 18-year hiatus from cycling, '80 to '98, has yours beat by a bit. Nothing to brag about, of course.

    Ride Cleburne

    I ride out of Irving but occasionally do overnight trips to Cleburne SP or Dinosaur Valley. Nice area. Welcome to the Forum
