Joining for two from Fort Collins, CO

No, my pregnancies were 20- some years ago. I was referring to my husband who doesn't manage the net very well but with whom I am hoping to ride back to robust health after a mutual long, long slide into middle-aged degeneration. We are both arthritic and carrying too much weight, and we both loved biking when young. Boy! It's a brave new world compared to the old days! We live just north of Fort Collins, CO and like to get out into the (relative) wild with or without our Great Pyrenees--and now with bikes! He just scored a Trek 820 (beautiful Blue!) in very good condition for $65 from a pawn shop! Now we are shopping for me--leaning toward a hybrid for dirt and gravel.

This is also my first ever forum. Please don't hesitate to correct me if I goof up! Have already "met" some wonderfully helpful people in the 50+ forum and am looking forward to more learning and sharing.

All the best!

Cheers Wildrider(s), 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?
