Riding but not as fast as I used to that's for sure

Hi all, I'm new to posting but not to biking. I've owned bicycles since I could walk and I'll soon be 66. Actually, I own perhaps 15 bikes. Can't stand to see people mistreat them, especially some of my old favorites, so I rescue them, fix'em up (so that they'll at least be dependable and safe) and pass'em on to people who will use and appreciate them. Do most of my riding these days with my friend Andy. He has a bike he bought while teaching in Japan 20 years or so ago. Don't recognize the name. I ride my Trek 700. Or at least I will until I get my '80 Schwinn Voyageur restored. Love that old Schwinn. Nothing I've ever owned has given me more pleasure.......Safe and enjoyable riding to you all.

Welcome! There's something about older bikes that makes them fun to ride. I am helping a friend restore an old 1970s (73?) Schwinn Varsity and it is a great bike to ride. Happy riding!
