Hello from Chandler, AZ

Hello All - FSOG Rich here. Mid-sixties rider- Been riding all my life, Two things I can't remember not knowing how to do: 1) Riding a bike and 2) Swimming. Mostly road bikes (Well, OK, 99.9% Road)

Grew up riding Schwinn Varsity's

I joined the Army in 1974 and bought my first "real" road bike, a Peugeot UO-8. I still have and ride the bike, and I'll post pictures after my probation I thought I was really something on that bike!

Bought a Litespeed Tuscany to ride in Triathlons and also still have and ride that bike. (Don't do Tri's anymore, though)

A few years ago I was working in Florida, traveling from Connecticut to Melbourne each week, so I found and bought a 1974 Raleigh Tourist off of Craiglist. All original. Had to replace the tires, saddle and grips. This is a sweet ride for trips to our local pizza joint.

Also have a Trek town bike that I use to chase Freeflight model airplanes (My "other" passion) out in the desert here in Arizona.

I've also been heavily involved with Cranksgiving, being the founder of the Hartford (Connecticut) Cranksgiving.

I was registered in the old Bicycling Magazine forums quite a few years ago. I suspect that this forum is a continuation of that forum?

Anyways - glad to be here, and if anyone is from the Phoenix area, let me know.
