Hello from Cape Cod

We are on the Cape from May till September/October. I will be 70 next November. Was a long time runner but of course running is a self selecting sport so around 50 knees and back started to balk. Picked up rowing as an alternative 4 times a week in a gym. Stayed with that pretty consistently until the Pandemic hit. Gym closed and I had an old entry level tank of hybrid bike that I had tuned and started riding seriously for the first time in my life. I stay on paths and am blessed to have a beautiful 11 mile run here on the Cape. I am up to 21 miles 3 times a week and have a new bike on order my wife of 44 years is giving me for my big birthday 70. 2021 Trek Domane AL 5 hopefully will be here before my 71st birthday😀. Have really fallen in love with the sport and still compete with myself as far as times go. Glad to say I am still improving but of course thatís from a pretty slow base. Look forward to spending a little time here learning from some the wisdom that seems to be everywhere.

Welcome and Hello from a Texas Rider.
Got this BMC when I was 70.
