I am hooked again on riding. I was riding alot in my mid 20s and just started again last year (now mid 50s). I was very happy to ride over 2500 miles last year and I did not start until April. I am looking forward to really racking up the miles this year and hopefully I'll get a true road bike.

Now that I have been riding enough to understand what I want and why I would benefit from it I can say that my low end Hybrid has served me well. But I really want a decent road bike and really crank up those miles.

Have great year!
