I rode many years ago in high school & college, started back riding about 15 years ago for health & fitness.
Recently got bitten by the vintage steel frame bug and old bikes are way cheaper than old hot rods...

Sorry for the tardy reply - I've spent all my time so far in the classic & vintage threads...
No, I don't ride my bike on the Turquoise Trail - only a short section of bike lane, not even much of a shoulder in most places. Plenty of other great bike friendly places to enjoy...

NEW Mexico, welcome aboard. I spent 13 years in Farmington, I love Hatch Green chilis. New Mexico is an incredible state. Which part do you live in?

Late to the party but welcome to BF and to C&V. I love New Mexico. I used to do a lot of hiking around the Gila Wilderness.
