Hello from Connecticut!

New member---new to the sport!
The last time I was on a bike I was laughing now!
Recently retired--one of them Engineering Types--and enjoying life with my wife Diane.
JUST purchased an 09 Trek 7.2 FX and have added a rack with a small bag, better saddle,wireless 5-function trip meter/speedometer,bottle w/ cage and ergo-hand grips.
I guess I could be labeled a 50 + RHINO-RIDER---6 foot 257lbs with two new knees(partial replacement on both)
Trying, now, to build my endurance to reverse lots of years of not doing too much physically.
It's only been 2-weeks but we're making progress!
This is a GREAT forum--- a real nice place to learn about this sport and meet some new friends.
Thanks for having me
