Hello from NC

Nearing retirement & just really got back into cycling back in January. Can't believe I've waited this long! Had a heavy Novara touring bike that I rarely used. Found a used Giant TCR SL1 which I loved but was a bit too rough on the greenways. Bought a Specialized Roubaix Pro after some suggestions but I wish I'd have kept the Giant too. Now I have a project frame that needs parts, an Eddy Merckx Team 7-Eleven. I tried to post photos but I'll have to hope I get 9 replies to thank so I can post some photos! ;-) Cheers, Daren

Hello! Yes, I was there riding with a group from your area including a couple with a tandem! Were you with us?? I found the ride while searching the web, don't remember what site. My wife has family in Wilmington and I tried to get my brother-in-law to ride but he couldn't make it. Cheers, Daren

I used to live that way before I got into riding. Checkout Cyclesdeoro for local happenings around Greensboro. From what I hear it's a great resource and group rides for that area.

Welcome.
