Howdy

Old guy, resident in southern Massachusetts. Close to retirement, bought myself a used Merckx frame and have built it up. Getting back to riding is getting back to community, for me. I used to be involved in a club, running the East Bay Cycling Club for a few years.

Being close to retirement is an excellent time to get back into cycling. Enjoy
