That's great. My ride is a Huffy hybrid probably of similar vintage to your Schwinn. A nice steady ride for running errands and riding to and from the office. Unfortunately, we've had too much rain lately for riding to the office.

Very surprised to find my topic still here! Rejoined SP in June 2013 and just now realizing of the cycling teams offered, Slow Riders fits me best . My current joyride is a stock vintage 1983/84 USA Schwinn Le Tour Luxe mixte that rides like a dream. It's fun to ride & makes riding fun again. Threw on some panniers and she's my go-to bike for now, while the roadies just hang in wait.
August goal is to ride every day. So far, so good!

Hey great to have you joining our SparkTeam!

Bigtime road cyclist here too. I have a similarly versatile bike, the Specialized Tricross...not that I do any cyclocross. But it happened to be my local LBS staff's personal choice because of it's flexibility in using under various conditions. Good enough for him? Good enough for me!

I nailed over 2,000 miles last year and am hoping to go well beyond that this year. I enjoy a 20-mile round trip work commute in warmer weather. Rain and cold will keep me off the bike though!

My goal this year is to take my first multi-day road trip on my bike...not camping but traveling lite and staying at hotels or B & B's. Now: I have to decide and start really cooking up specific plans! :-)

Already a member of Girls Gone Riding, I just discovered Slow Riders! I've loved most everything cycling since my 1st bike at age 5. Raced BMX bikes in the '80s, rode mountain bikes several years, then found I really enjoy road riding and recreational trails. I have a few bikes, but my favorite is a Cannondale Road Warrior flat bar road bike set up for touring. At nearly 34 lbs. it's a great training bike and urban assault vehicle, ideal for errands and outdoor markets. My husband commutes by bike, so given the opportunity at the end of his workday I ride to meet him (downhill), then we share the ride home together (very uphill). We're both fairly fit, yet still fluffy, so all the pointers from SparkPeople help us maintain a healthy lifestyle. Looking forward to reading of others cycling adventures, as well as sharing a few of ours.
