Hello from Georgia, USA

Hello everyone! I'm 64, did a couple of BRAGs (Bicycle Ride Across Georgia) in my younger days, but am mainly a runner and hiker. Now I am enjoying cycling as a relief for the knees and hips.

I did an Appalachian Trail thru-hike in 2014 - 2100+ miles in 5 months. So I thought I would try the TransAmerica Bike trail next, but not until 2020 (If I last that long!). So I am here for advice and to learn. Will be checking out the 50+ and the touring subforums!

My username? I also play piano...

Welcome to the forum! I also live in Georgia, and there are a few others on the forum as well. Where in Georgia do you live?

SW of Atlanta - Chattahoochee Hills. On a gravel road, actually, so I have road and gravel options to ride.

Welcome aboard BF, when we are visiting our daughter perhaps some Silver Comet time would be nice if you are up for it.

Welcome to Bike Forums from a former Decatur resident who retired to west central Florida (now 73 y/o). Glad I'm out of the ATL traffic.
Stop by the Southeast Regional subforum and say hello. We have quite a few GA folks on here.
