I'm back

It has been awhile since I've posted here. I've still been riding but not as much as I would have liked. I was injured at work and also had to keep up dual residences as I worked out of town. With all that said life gets busy and I didn't visit here. I'll have to poke around and see who I remember from before. I hope to be able to stop in and follow some of the threads.

I'm putting this in print in hopes to make it more of a commitment than just idle chatter. This week I hope to move into the category of bike commuter. A couple months ago I retired and took a new position. My old position required that I use a company car, I'm not complaining, but the new position allows me to commute. It is about 14 miles one way, with about 2 miles of level ground. It isn't actually the riding that scares me as much as how organized you have to be to make sure you get there with all your stuff on time.

Just wanted to say Hi...again.
