Hello from North Carolina

Hi All, been reading the forums for a good while, finally registered so I can ask stupid questions now and then.

I live near Raleigh, NC, and try to get out every day for an hour or so of recreational riding, do longer rides on weekends, virtually always solo unless my wife joins me. Really enjoy being outdoors, the peace, exercise, critters, meeting some dogs (and their owners). I have 2 flat/riser-bar/hybrid bikes: unlike most people, I find myself transitioning from exclusively ebike to riding the regular bike more often. I also qualify for the over-50 discussions.

Happy to be here!

I enjoy mixing e with traditional road bikes.

Variety in cycling is a spice for my life.

An enlightened soul! I am finding this more true every day - not just traditional vs ebike, but the variety of traditional bikes has really caught my attention. Wife will not be pleased.

Don’t hang with me then. These were the roadies + G Fisher, a few months ago. Couple of mtb bikes behind the picture. I eliminated some and obtained a couple. A full life fulfills me. And I’m just a BF amateur.
