Hi from bt93

Just thought I'd say hello to everyone. I've been reading the forums here,mostlly the commuter forum, for most of a year, thought I'd join.
I was commuting by bicycle for 8 years but I took last year off as I was having a few problems with my legs and figured I'd take a break. For this year I'm going to ditch my 9yr old Trek 7300 for a Novara Buzz V. I'm going from a suspension hybrid to a rigid hybrid. I only have a 2 mile ride to work, but as soon as spring breaks, I'll park the car until the snow starts in hopefully November this year. (Actually hopefully never, but that's asking too much)
I like long rides on the weekends, and I know I've done more than a few centuries. Anyway I assume if I've had over 10 hours in the saddle, I've done atleast a century. I'll take long rides, stop long enough to eat or shop. That ten hours I mentioned is solid saddle time, I'll head out early on a Saturday or Sunday around 7 or 8 am and not get home until 7 or 8 pm. That'll happen 4 or 5 times a season. Otherwise atleast 5 or 6 hours atleast one day a weekend, but usually both days. I'll do all of my errands on bicycle and basically forget the car for the most part. I live within 2 miles of work, my favorite grocery store, and church. I have a large mall only 5 miles away. Basically I have it made. I do not ride in winter for anything though. I hate windchill and I'm not even going to tangle with ice on two wheels.
I want to thank everyone here for the added knowledge I've been able to acquire while taking my one year off the bicycle. That also kept me motivated to get back on it.
