newbie-oldfurt

Oxymoron right?
Hello from the beautiful Ozarks!
Have a bike that has been hanging in the shed for almost 18 years. Bout time I get it out.
At 68 YO I will be getting back into things a bit slowly but I am dedicated to do so.
I hope to get motivation and technical help from this form and hope to contribute a bit as I can as well.
Lastly -- I wish I had gone through some threads first b4 I chose the cliche username. It really tags me as a one bike owner right?
Yea, I'll own it.
Thanks for having this forum!

A person can only ride one bike at a time, it might as well be Italian (or Japanese).

Ozarks? If that means quiet rural roads and hilly terrain - then I envy you. I was once in Missouri and liked the relatively empty backroads.
I ride older roadies, join us in C&V BianchiBravaUS

Desire to stay healthy and vital. And have fun while doing it.
last pastime was messing with old land rovers.
This will be easier, healthier and much much cheaper.

I've got you by only a couple of years - and steady with a good routine becomes imperative to aging with enjoyment.

edit: sister in AR, but not Ozarks, likely won't get back. Got a zero bike there, if you happen to drive south of LR = take a bike carrier if 58cm fits.

One more post and you can show us a picture. I used to ride a 1973 Motobecane Le Champion road bike but by the time I got to your age decided I needed something that rattled the bones a lot less.
