Howdy

Another old, fat guy here. I live in the western suburbs of Chicago and got back into cycling last August. I really haven't ridden much since I was a kid. Once I got a driver's license, I pretty much put the bike away. About 20 years ago, I briefly started riding again and really enjoyed it. I really can't recall why I stopped.

After a particularly bad round of golf last August, a friend who had been an avid rider said he was going to start riding again. My game had been deteriorating the past few years, and I didn't play well either. I told him I was going to get a bike and ride too. The next day, I went to my LBS and picked up a hybrid, and I was hooked! Wasn't very fast, or very good, but I loved the feeling. Three months later, went back and bought a new road bike.

Looking forward to being a member here.

Welcome to Bike Forums. Glad you found us. Stop by the 50+ forum and say hello the the other old timers. I'm 71 and hang out there a lot.
