I biked a lot twenty years ago when I was in college and was very in shape. Am trying to rediscover it now, mostly with kid friendly recreation. My husband is an avid mountain biker, way more in shape and way more of a daredevil than I, but even given the widely differing capacities of the four of us, we do enjoy biking together on easy trails.

Alas, we can't bike to work (I have a 20-mile commute, he has a 35-mile commute) but I'm trying to make more time for biking and I love hearing about it and thinking about it.

I've done road riding and trail riding, but nothing scary or technical. And I'm very out of shape, but biking is something I've always loved and have many happy memories built around.

Right now I have an old rebuilt Proflex that is so easy to ride. The kids have decent bikes too. Hubby has both a road bike and a mountain bike.

so, hi!

Hi back! My kids aren't quite up to independent bicycling, but I look forward to the point where they are....

My hat is off to you if you can find time to ride your bike in such a busy life! Me, I can commute by bike, so I do, and I get to be twenty-five kinds of smug around people who don't believe that a middle aged woman like me, who ain't exactly athletic looking, could possibly be in shape.

Thing is, I only started a few months ago. The commute that about killed me (it's uphill going home after a long day in front of a computer) in September is pretty much a breeze now, and I keep noticing these thigh muscles that I have NEVER had the like of before.

So welcome here and I hope you enjoy getting back to bike-riding even half as much as I have.

Hi and welcome.

Don't worry - I'm young and still out of shape!
