Hello from Iowa

I found Bike Forum when researching a 1980 Schwinn Voyager 11.8 with chrome finish that I purchased at a garage sale. I have been a casual biker for years, commuting to work during the warmer months and occasionally trail riding for fun. Last year I bought a new Specialize Sequoia. The quality of the bike has encouraged me to do more long distance riding. I have completed two days of RAGBRAI last year and again this year and have done a couple of century rides. If I go a couple of days without being able to ride at least 10 miles I get depressed. I am looking forward to learning from and contributing to Bike Forum.

Welcome. Getting upset after not riding a few days means you’re hooked. But that’s hooked in a good way.

Lots of folks here from Iowa. You should spend some time in the C&V forum where people talk about and ride older bikes. You have a really good one.
