Hi from western Massachusetts.

Hi, everyone. New to the forums, have been lurking for a while and participate low level on a couple of other sites. I'm a recreational rider. I typically ride 2-3000 miles per year. I ride on the weekends, run on weekdays. I rode semi-enthusiatically in the 70's and 80's, then took a long time off with only occasional slow rides with wife and kid. Bought a LeMond Zurich in 2006 and got into it. I just turned 60, so I am not going to set any records (or even enter any competitions) but I really enjoy going out for 3-5 hours on weekend mornings. I do a couple of long organized rides each year as well.
I still have my bike from the 70's, steel Velosolex. I also have a recumbent which I ride occasionally, mostly when I'm with someone who is much slower than I (and not many people are!) or in short local fund raisers. I also have a tandem which I ride when I can find someone to ride with me. The latter two are craigslist specials, so I don't have a lot invested and don't mind if they sit most of the time (and neither does my wife).
I mostly like to see what other people think, and how they solve problems. I have picked up a lot of useful information here and on other forums. Hopefully I will be able to contribute something from time to time as well.

Hello Mike,

Welcome to Bike Forums.

I started road riding at 65.

Those are good miles for where you live.

Keep it up.
