Another returning cyclist

Since stumbling into Bike Forums a few weeks ago, I keep finding forums that I have a connection with and couldn't put off registering another day. I live on the Space Coast of Florida and I'm currently transforming myself from being an ex-cyclist into an ex-fat old man. I've work at shops, owned my own shop and built wheels for an importer in my early years. My longest tour was 8500 miles around the eastern US and Canada back in '79. Now at 60 years old I started out doing 10 mile rides almost every day with no problems yet and the pounds are allready starting to come off. I used to ride alot of centuries and I am trying to be able to return to them in the near future.

Hello Perigee, welcome to Bike Forums!

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

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

Welcome to BF. My daughter lives in your area and I usually take my bike down with me when I visit.
"Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey
