Hello from North Carolina

My name is Mark. I am a middle aged rider from North Carolina. I have recently gotten back into riding after a long hiatus. I have a Trek 1000 that it about 10 years old and is in great shape.

I stumbled upon this forum while doing research on Google. It looks like a very diverse and inclusive group.

Hey Mark, Welcome! I am glad you are able to join up here.

We've got a lot of subsections here, one that may be interesting for you is the 50+ section. There are a lot of people in there who talk about everything cycling (and more ) that pertains to this age group. Have a look around and have fun!

Welcome Mark to Bike Forums. If "middle aged" means 50 y/o or older then stop by the 50+ forum and say hello to the other old timers. I hang out there. I'm a 71 y/o roadie.
And be sure to stop by the Southeast Regional subforum and say hello to the locals. Lots of NC folks on here.

I am a cyclist. I am not the fastest or the fittest. But I will get to where I'm going with a smile on my face.
