Hello from Pensacola Florida

Hello all, back to cycling after a decade hiatus. Hurricane Ivan took my Chrome Paramount and Austro Daimler. Been cycling again for almost a year now, it’s easier on the joints than running for an old guy. Started back with a Craigslist special, a Fisher Klunker and now recently decided it was Paramount time again, I really miss that bike. I bought another Chrome Paramount P13-9 and came to this forum to leech off the knowledge base a bit and it was very helpful…too helpful. In addition to the Chrome Paramount I purchased a couple vintage track bikes to restore, I always admired the beauty and simplicity of a track bike and I am really looking forward to bringing these back to good condition. Anyway, great site, looking forward to chatting with you folks.

I know a guy who is in his 80's and rides all over Pensacola. He is a riding animal on a bike! Twice my age and rides twice as far as me.

Johnny that would not be me. I do neighborhood laps every morning before work, with an occasional Milton bike trail ride every now and then.

Welcome to BF from another Pensacola resident, actually in the Barrineau Park/Molino area. Where are you riding in the area?

Hello Bill, most of my riding consists of laps around the neighborhood but I do occasionally ride the Blackwater Heritage State Trail in Milton and sometimes Pensacola Beach to Navarre Beach and out to Fort Pickens.
