Hello from Western Indiana

Hi. I've been reading the forum for a couple of months and decided to join -- getting back into riding after about 10 years absence. I've had an old Schwinn Le Tour for many years, but looking to get a lighter hybrid to start riding again.

I'm my family's computer guy and bicycle repairman, if that tells you something about me.

Great forum here, hope to contribute at some point, and certainly to enjoy.

Howdy zhak,

Welcome from Texas and Bike Forums.

I moved from Indianapoils in 1971.

Return each year in June to ride The Indy Track 100 mile Tour de Cure.

Thank you for your welcome, 10 Wheels.

I grew up in Speedway about 1/4 mile from the track. Back in the 60's they used to let the local kids ride our bikes around the track every so often. We were more interested in playing on the banked curves than going around the track. Coincidentally, I also moved away in '71. I didn't know about the Tour de Cure, thanks for the info, that may be a good goal for me for next year.

Cheers.
