Back in the saddle again!

After 22 years, I'm back on the bike. In the late 70's and mid 90's, I was pedaling around Germany on a steel frame 10 speed Peugeot and loving life. A back injury put an end to that and I figured that was that. Well, several months ago I started going to the gym and using the stationary bike to lose weight. I discovered that there was no back pain either. I've just bought a 2016 Trek 1.2 and love it. Of course, I am still getting used to it compared to the old Peugeot steelie. What a difference! Lots of back roads and highways to explore here in central Texas. This forum was very helpful in re-educating myself before going to the lbs.
