Hi from Radpucker!

Hi from the Rad man from Ludlow MA I am a on the verge of the Big Five O cyclist. I have done my share of riding over the years with riding from MA to Montreal then Minnesota in 77 and then my X-Country ride from Ma to DC to LA California in fall of 78 and did numerous rides over the years such as the Pan Mass challenge, MS rides etc.
I slowed down the last few years and recently bought myself a new bike 2 years ago to kind of get me going again. A Specialized Sequoia (not sure if I need the dual brake levers but they are handy!) I like the cushy ride of the Sequoia and it has been very forgiving to my older bones! I also have an older Pro flex mt bike (now K2) for my trail riding.

My first 10 speed as they called them back then was a Torro italian bike which my dad bought me. I then had a Raleigh Grand Prix and did my X-country ride on a Motobecane Grand Jubilee(double crank and 10 speeds) I also had some Trek's and an older Sequoia for other bikes I owned. As you can see from my user name I also play in an adult ice hockey league. Keeps me young!

I now have a new little boy 1 years old (not a typo) and also 2 daughters 19 and 16 and pulled them for a few years in a bike trailer and then the caboose bike. My older daughter has a road bike and rides when time permits with her busy college life and boyfriend and my younger daughter is not into it yet other than casual riding. My little guy is ready for the bike trailer this year and he gives me another reason to stay healthy!

Anyways I found the bike forums on a google search and figured I'd join. We have great roads to ride on here in Western MA (Spfld-Amherst- Northampton) and northern CT. I need to ride more to lose this beer gut I seem to have acquired over the years! HA! Must be those post hockey game beers I have in the locker room!

Keep riding!

Hi radpucker, you are leading a very full life, not to mention that you are probably very tired...if you haven't already done so, you might visit the Northeast regional forum and say hello to your fellow local cyclists.

Welcome to BF!
