New Hampshire

Wow, this is some big forum! It'll take me all winter to read everything. I am 48, have been riding steadily for about 10 years now. It has helped me lose, and keep off 100 pounds. Started with a mountain bike, but ended up riding it on the road all the time, so got my 1st road bike a year later. Usually can squeeze in 5000 or so miles in a year. This fall, just started doing cyclocross races & had a great time. Last week I bought a fixed gear bike, so that's my latest obsession. This past summer, one of my best days was doing the Mt. Washington hillclimb race, my first time ever. Hope to do it again, a little faster, next year. I love reading & talking about cycling.

You're not anywhere in the Hanover area, are you? I commute on a fixed gear from Brownsville, VT to Hanover.

Wow! I drove up that mountain and that was work.
I just turned 48 and I wonder if I can do what I see the kids doing.....
I'm encouraged by your determination.

Before I started cycling, I thought the Mt Washington climb was the most foolish thing I've ever heard of, also the most difficult. Now, a few years older, and 100 lbs lighter, I'm addicted to climbing

I'm from southern N.H., I was up around your area many times last year & will be back again. I did alot of hillclimbing at mt. Ascutney & over to Okemo, in preparation for Mt. Washington. Many years ago, I went to school in Vermont, and lived in Brownsville. Going back last year, I was happy to see it has remained relatively unchanged. Sounds like you have a good commute, especially for a fixed gear bike. I've just started using one lately, just bought it a month ago. Whenever the weather cooperates, I'm on it. You're lucky to be living where you are, that's exactly where I'd like to live.

Welcome to the forum redliner.

I'm 48 too...cycling helped me get this far...

No more racing for me...SoCal commuting and MTB'ing is plenty for me.
