Hello from Connecticut

Just a quick hello from Connecticut and intro. I got back into cycling January 2018 with a hybrid bike and purchased a mountain bike a few months ago. I used to ride a lot in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Never a racer, more for fitness and fun. Had a couple of Cannondales CAAD 5s back then. Went to a Giant fitness bike in 2016 to help in rehab from a hip replacement. Cycling became less important due to my work over the next 10 years, although I would always ride in the 5 Borough Bike Tour, tour number 19 for me coming up in May.

Semi retired now and need to stay active. Both bikes are Cannondales, a Quick Carbon 1 and Cujo 2 with an added dropper post. Entered a couple of charity rides last year and had a blast, looking forward to a few more this year. Last winter and this winter I try to get on the bike once or twice a week riding mostly on a paved trail that is plowed, part of the east coast greenway. https://www.traillink.com/trail/farm...eritage-trail/

Looking forward to spring and warmer weather.

Ken

It is beautiful once you get out of any of the cities here. Lots of rolling hills and current and former farm land.

Welcome!
Somewhat similar to your story, I rode (both road and trail) for years but sporadically to say the least. Since retiring a few years back, I've been rolling up the miles both road and off.
