hallo, fellow cyclers

I've been reading your forum for a while. Good people here! So I thought it was time to register myself. I'm the green lion, a name derived from a breed of cyclists I believe to have existed in Europe just after the 2-nd world war. I like the name. I think they where also called "flandriens". I'm a generation younger than them though, but a generation older than the one which rules the cycling world today.
I'm a "moderate" bicyclist, I guess. I ride about 100 miles a week, four times 25 miles, it may be a little more in the weekend. I started riding about one year ago, just for fun. I like it, I love it and I want some more of it.
I'm located in central Florida.

Welcome, and thanks for registering. 100 miles / 160 km per week puts you ahead of alot of people in this forum.

Hearty welcome from a temporarily sunny Midwest! That's good, choosing a name based on a pleasant historical association.
