Nice to see you still pedaling. We have a section for those 50+ if you are interested.
"Foolish, selfish people are always thinking of themselves and the result is always negative. Wise persons think of others, helping them as much as they can and the result is happiness. Love and compassion are beneficial both to you and others. Through your kindness to others, your mind and heart will open to peace. " ~ Dalai Lama

Welcome to BF. Lots of good riding in VT! I've done quite a few bike miles in your beautiful state - and have planned some more routes in the Benninton-Manchester-Rutland area using 'Ride with GPS'. I have another ride idea that involves taking the Ticonderoga ferry across Lake Champlain from NY and then riding up to Middlebury and back - some excellent and scenic back roads.

BF is a great website with lots on interesting/entertaining stuff and good people. As another poster suggested the 50+ page is good. You might also want to try the Classic and Vintage (if you like '60's - '80's bikes and discussion). The Bicycle Mechanics page has some real experts to answer all your questions. And the 'General' page has a wide variety of topics.

After 10 posts of your own you can start posting pictures.

Have fun!
