Thank you. All of you are an inspiration to me as I've just got back on a bike in the last couple of months after many, many years. I turn 71 next week. I've yet to make connections with other riders but I'm sure that will change soon. I'm use to soloing most of the time. I've yet to take a long distance ride as even the roads around here, with just two lanes, can have speeds of 60 mph with no extra space to walk let alone ride a bike! So for now I take the same routes, varying it as much as I can. I ride at least 60-75 minutes , daily when I can, but because I'm getting stronger and faster I'm having to be creative with my basic two routes. Now I realize that I may have to drive to areas more conducive to bike riding. Bottom line, I'm really happy to be biking again.
