It's good to be back

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

It's good to be back

I've really missed being active in here. I suppose like many of us, life has gotten in the way of being able to spend much time here.

Oh, I've popped in from time to time to do a quick search but have been pretty much inactive for years and I've missed the interaction with my fellow riders....forgetting how much fun this place is and about how, even after the many years I've been riding, how much I've learned from this forum

I've been back in for the past few days and....yeah....it's good to be back.

He got hit by a car and died instantly. Happened maybe 3-4 years ago. Very sad.

Oh no! That is awful. He was a friend to everyone in here and, I'm sure, to many others.

Sad indeed.

Hey Billy...thanks. I'm none the worse for wear (well maybe a bit). I've had some vision issues but still riding. Although at 62 I'm.not going as far or as fast as I once did

It almost feels like coming back home to be back here..

Yeah, he was the self-anointed Pope of BF. Very much missed.

I haven’t been on this forum in years. I had to re-register as a new user tonight as email addresses, etc have changed. I remember you though from back when I was on the forum. I saw your picture and said “I know that guy. He is still around”.

Thank you. It seems like we both took a long hiatus from here.

I missed it and it sure feels good to be back.

I was absent for a number of years, but I mostly read, not posted and I do remember you. What matters is getting out and riding, not how fast or how far you ride. Aging isn't really fun, but making the best of what life brings is all we can do. My next bike may very well be an electric bike :-)
