Greetings from North Central Illinois

Been riding regularly since 2003, managed to get in 5000 miles per year for the last 4 or 5 years. Started out doing trail riding in Wisconsin as a fun way to go get a beer. Then I figured out I could ride farther on the trails on the weekend if I rode during the week so I bought a road bike and start road riding. Now I do mostly road riding but still like to get in the occasional weekend trip to the trails in Wisconsin or the KATY in St. Charles, MO. Developing an interest in gravel riding. Have spent most of my time on here lurking in the free-for-all that is A&S, but I figured it is time to introduce myself and do some posting. Like the 50+, Clydesdale, and the new Gravel forums, but they need a 50+ Clydesdale forum so I don't have to switch back and forth. Been a Clyde for all but one day of the last 20 or so years - one day I got on the scale and it read 197.5, should have taken a pic. Currently in the 230's but hoping to rededicate myself this year to get back to 210 or so. Good Riding!

Welcome from a little lower in Illinois - near St. Louis. I'm certainly a member of the 50+ Clydesdales. Heck in a couple of months I'll qualify for the 60+ Clydesdales!

I like the Katy also and I'm going from end-to-end for the 4th year in a row with this group:

Thanks, 10Wheels. My gf works in Florida over the winters, so I can get in some extra miles there, although I do ride year round here. This winter has been hard on it though.
