Hello from North Port Fl

I am AL. I will be 69 this fall. I recently got back into bicycling after a 50+ year layoff. I had 2 stents put in last fall and figured if I want to hang around for another few years, I had better try and get back into shape at least a little. I went out and bought a box store bike and started off slow. It didn't take long to realize if I was going to do any good I needed something more, so I went to a LBS and got fitted for a Trek shift 3 as I am only riding the back streets around here. As of now I am doing 60 to 70 miles a week. Feeling much better and my heart Dr is very happy with my progress. I look forward to watching the forums and learning about my refound hobby.

Welcome to Bike Forums from west central FL. I'm 70 and enjoy riding on the local trails.
Stop by the Southeast Regional subforum to meet locals and say hello.
