Hello from California

This is a reintroduction since I'm returning from a 2+ year hiatus induced by post-retirement activities frenzy. Two years ago at 69 I was really fit, now not so much. My goal is to cycle at least 4x/week and ride all the harder climbs within 30 miles of my house; think of this as my bucket list.

My wife and I were avid tandem riders, but sold the tandem since she no longer rides so I'm on my own ride-wise, but I've discovered you really don't forget how to ride a bicycle. My ride is a Volagi converted to a triple. Loved the bike before the break and still love it. Got my first flat since resumption today; thank goodness for tubeless tires.
