Greetings from the Red State of GA (Atlanta)

My name is Rick and have enjoyed browsing bike forums for last 2 years.
I am retired 67 year old who got hooked on Golf at age 49 and bike riding again at age 62. Started with $150 Schwinn hybrid from K-MART in 2010 and was stolen from backyard in middle of night in 2012.
Turns out was one of best things to ever happen to me. Decided to go to LBS and picked up 2013 Specialized Crossroads, a solid, smooth and comfortable hybrid which is really fun to ride and gave me the itch to get a nice road bike. I remembered buying new Motobecane Grand Jubile back in 1977 and in January 2015 found beautiful mechanic restored 1976 Grand Jubile and love 70's lugged, double butted steel bikes now. Circle of Life! LOL.
Looking forward to sharing thoughts, questions and advice with fellow bikers!

Welcome to Bike Forums from a former Atlanta resident, now retired in west central Florida. Stop by the 50+ forum and say hello to the other old timers. And while you're there, check out the 65-85+ thread near the top. I hang out there a lot. I'm 70.
You might find folks to ride with in your neck of the woods in the Southeast Regional subforum.
