About Me

Hi Bike Forum members,
My name is Velma (45), I live in McAllen, Texas (South Texas). I've had a Specialized Dolce Elite for about two years now. I rode it a few times, did a charity ride and was preparing for another when I broke my ankle. I was out for the count for several months. Then started up again slowly. I've done a few charity rides this year. I ride once a week 25 - 30 miles (avg.speed 17-19). My boyfriend and I started riding in a group and have found it alot more enjoyable. This weekend we rode 33 miles on Saturday and 40 on Sunday. I was awesome!

Hey Velma - welcome to the forums - lots to offer here - fun and rides. And very nice you're enjoying the group rides too. Google your area for your area bike clubs and bike shops for other rides too and have even more fun! Also check in on the regional forums for your area here as they may have some more info for you.
