miss the freedom


I have not ridden a bike consistently for 20+ years. (The gym doesn't count - although that isn't to steady either ) I would like to get back to biking! I'd say at this point I could do OK with low hills.
Others things... LOVE Soccer! Grew up playing that in central Jersey. ... live, right now, a little north of Philadelphia, PA but I am hoping to get back closer to Jersey - lord knows no one can afford live in NJ anymore! My last bike sat in the back of the pick-up for a year before I removed to the driveway and the tire spokes are a lovely shade of beige. It was a 6 speed and would consider a beachcomber, kind of anyway. al for my intro here -

Dear Marriska:

You may think I have perhaps completed my journey in the world, rusted a bit, discolored perhaps ... but I may be still a great friend to have when trying out those trails again.

Shall I get mushy now?

I miss you <smoochies>


Your bicycle

Welcome aboard!!!!! But seriously! Your bike misses you!

Hi Marriska, don't be stranger to your bike! A bit of scrubbing will help with the beige spokes, and some oil on the chain and other wear/pivot points might be a good idea too !

Now, get out there and DO IT!

Welcome to BF!
