Back in the saddle

Hi,

My name is Harold living in Northern NJ, and after 30 years, I'm riding again. I recently had a heart issue and last June was on the operating table. I always loved to ride but life interfered with it. So this April it bought a Motobecane just to see if my passion was still there and it was.

In the last 3+ months I've logged over 1k miles and have lost 13lbs. I love riding and the biking community, I had to get re-acquainted with the bicycle and all the new advances so I came here.

This Sunday I will take part in the Ramapo Rally and I chose the 50 mile course. I hope to upgrade my bike next year and do my first century. I'm looking at a Specialized Roubaix or Bianchi.

Welcome to Bike Forums. I'm guessing you're over 50. If so, stop by the 50+ forum. Lots of "heart patients" there, including me. I'm 70.
