Greetings from NYC

In 2002 a friend asked me to ride the 5 boro tour. I had not ridden a bike in 20 years but I bought a Giant Rincon and became instantly addicted! Soon I was participating in longer rides. When I signed up for a weekend (280 mile) ride I bought a Giant OCR 1. For the money I spent I was thrilled with how it performed on that ride and all the others.

Sadly, just as I started riding well I got very sick. It's been five years since I rode either bike...

But, I'm back! My MD finally cleared me to ride (with restrictions) and I've been adding more and more miles on my Rincon. I may not be able to do centuries, or even metric centuries, again but just to be able to ride at all feels amazing!

I look forward to reading about your riding adventures, and sharing some of my own, in the future.

Cheers and a belated welcome to Bike Forums! Looking forward to reading your posts.

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
