Greetings from Illinois

greeting folks, I am a newbe to cycling. I am 57 today and really want to regain control of my health. I did a lot of research on which ride to get and chose the 2015 Specialized carbon expert disc. I was looking for the elite but the shop only had the expert and after riding it fell in love with it It was more than I was planning to spend but the shop gave me a handsome discount….so I could not fight it . I hope I will learn and be worthy of the bike. I live in Illinois we is seems cold half the year. My solution is visiting my son in Florida for part of the Winter. (Winter Garden area). Anyway, today is my birthday and I wanted to start the new year with a new plan and a new bike . Happy New Year Everyone!
