Greetings From Indiana

Hello everyone! I am a Midwesterner from Indiana, but actually live very near Louisville Kentucky. Consequently, you may detect a slight Southern Accent in my typing! Anyway, I was a biker many years ago, left it and have returned in recent years, but truly got back into it this year. I had forgot how great it was and can't imagine why I strayed for so long.

I am a road biker and ride with the Southern Indiana Wheelmen which is a fantastic organization. I am not nearly the rider I was when I was younger, but enjoy it just the same. Although I have rode over a hundred miles in a day numerous times years ago, I have never done an official century. I am hoping to complete one this fall.

I am looking forward to reading and posting in the forum and hope to make lots of new biking friends.

Thanks for the welcome messages! I am riding a Giant Defy equipped with Shimano 105 stuff, but I am trading up soon. More on that later.

Welcome. Nice riding in your area. Underground RR route from Adventure Cycling passes nearby. Louisville bike club is great, and Kentucky Randonneurs if you go off the deep end.

Enjoy bf.
