Hi, I am Pete from upstate NY. I've been riding regularly for about 10 years. I won't tell my age but I started when I was 38. Cycling seems to be the only thing that keeps the weight off me. I love the fact that only one of my 4 kids will cycle with me because they can't keep up. Road bike, mountain bike I do both. I recently started doing my own maintenance, which my bike shop loves since they often times have to bail me out but practice makes perfect and now I have BikeForums touse as a reference tool.
Ride Right!!

Welcome to the forum Pete. My son won't ride with me either. He doesn't understand how anyone in their right mind wants to ride 100 miles on a bike. The last time we rode was only a metric and I had to rush back home and get a car to come and get him. I think he quit at abut 40 miles.
