Hey from Henderson, NV. Welcome to bike forums! I returned to riding like you after a 20 something year break. That was over 20 years ago. Its a blast.

@pursuance
thank you! and thanks for that most excellent link, unknowingly i've been doing all the south of the circuit, i have plans to do the san gabriel trail next.

@theEconomist
they are! and what do you know? folding bike riders actually stop and talk for bit when they bump into each other. I'm surprised
