Hi from Merritt Island, Florida

Hello Folks,
I'm a long time recreational rider, but have been trying to improve my speed and stamina over the past few months. One of my main limiting factors has been neck pain associated with riding. Well, I took the advice of my local bike shop and have been riding more regularly. Presto, neck pain almost not an issue, I'm riding faster, and as an added bonus I don't feel as if I'm gonna die after the ride anymore Unfortunately, I have discovered all the cool new bikes and gear available now. Doesn't bode well for impending retirement. Anyway, glad to be here. I'm sure I will learn a lot.

Where do you live on MI? I also live on MI and ride several days a week. Usually 40-50 miles rides. Lots of good places to ride around here including the beach at low tide.
