So went away for a while, but in 2019 trying to get my lazy ass back on the bike, so decided to come by and see who from the old guard was still around.

I'm in the same boat. Been away from BF's for quite a while, but thinking about doing some cycling this spring after the melt. Was curious to see who was left from the oldies.

Most of my posts were the 2005 thru 2009 vintage … things were a bit different in Foo back then. Going through some of the recent posts it seems like an adult has been put in charge … which isn't necessarily a bad thing

Working on building up my first bike in 5 years, of course in non-typical fashion I kinda took a leap on a frame before I really knew what I was getting into...

I was around before pcad was a legend. Or at least, during his rise. Somehow I ended up with him on FB too....

I would agree. On both counts.

Happily not wearing the blue star anymore haha

It does seem like we're getting older here, some even more mature.

I dare say that perhaps the general cycling population is getting older.

I'd like to think that new young kids are joining our ranks each year, but looking at the local schools and streets... I don't see many young folks on bikes.

No, he was on a break like you too.

I forced it back on him. I got some good super glue this time.

Dont' get too close or I may do the same to you too.

I don't make promises I can't keep, and I don't take on commitments I can commit to.
