Another old guy, new member

Hi, we're Jim and Becky. As a teen, I used to ride my old 10-speed all over Sacramento, and Becky used hers all over the south bay. Life goes by, exes that weren't into cycling, etc.

Now we're getting back into it for health and recreational reasons. Recently did the SF WNBR and found out just how out of shape we are, so there's the major motivation.

Jim has a 1996 Giant Farrago, and Becky has a early 90's Mongoose Rockadile we've made into a hybrid bike. Looking to get a few accessories and use the bikes more often.

Welcome to Bike Forums. Stop by the 50+ forum and say hello to the other old timers. I hang out there. I'm 69.
