Scott (n4zou) from Alabama

Just joined this bike forum and find it very nice. I have been riding a bike on and off from the time I was 8 yrs old. I had to retire due to severe arthritis two years ago and one year ago my Doctor put me on dope for the pain. I immediately knew I wanted nothing to do with that! My Doctor told me that for some people, riding a bicycle will eliminate pain better than drugs and he was correct! I now ride 50 miles at a time every other day and use one of my bikes to go shopping and for general transportation. I am off all pain medication, dropped 35 lbs, and I am in better physical condition than I have ever been in. I am also an Amateur Radio (HAM) Operator and sometimes take a radio transceiver with me on my bicycling adventures and talk via radio with other HAM radio operators along the way.

Welcome from a neighbor to the east.
Kudos on the weight and meds achievement.

Ham radio on a bike? Now there's a new one. Must be one huge battery.

Welcome to the forum! Lotsa good stuff here, look around. What part of Alabama are you in? FYI, I'm also a ham, but I'm pretty much inactive since I spend my spare time on my bike! I don't take my radio on my bike because I really like less noise and diversion when I'm riding, not more! AI4GZ
