Hello to All from Southeast USA

Greetings and Happy Holiday Season to all bike enthusiasts here!

Long time rider, getting back into serious riding after almost a decade of mildly sedentary living. 60 yo. Riding mostly road and a little off road but now big time into gravel. Very mountainous topography here: lots of forest, big steep hills, white knuckle descents. Just ordered a 2019 Breed 30 (a somewhat self-indulgent Christmas -- but others are getting hooked up as well!) and looking forward to grinding it for many miles.

Also, looking to get into some bike packing and longer stuff this coming Spring so I have been lurking here for a little while and am thanking for having found lots of info which is of immense help making final decision on which bike to buy.

As some would say here in The Dirty South: 'preciate y'all.

Welcome. The south (east) is a great place to live i think. Where exactly you are? I use to live in South Carolina and Georgia and its definitely full with any kind of terrain you want. Now Chicago is totally bad for biking
