Hello from Wyoming

HI! Started riding with my wife when we were about 65. garage sale bikes- old S-Works mtb, old Rockhopper, moved to matching Roubaix roadies, got a hybrid. We like rails/trails; the Root River in Mn and the George Mickelson in SD are awesome. Trying to negotiate abandonment of the Roubaix thing and going to SURLY LHT, I hope. The bent-over position sucks for me and I ain't no racer wannabe. Looking forward to some interesting reading here.

Those are long rides from Wyoming, maybe you should compete.

Welcome to the forum, and best of luck swapping out to bikes more suited to your needs and preferences.
