History: I was born in the 50's married in the 80's had two kids in the late 80's rediscovered bicycling in April of 2005, so I guess that makes it 11 years since I restarted. The last couple of years I had some Physical Issues, first was rotator cuff surgery from a car hitting me while I was walking across the street. Took pretty much a year off for that. Then after that healed up I started tooo aggressively and injured both of my knees and spent the better part of 2015's riding weather doing PT. This year (2016) I am starting again but much more conservatively, we'll see how this works out.

Road bike
Description:  2006 A Bright Red Cannondale Synapse Alloy 2 shown in action on the Mad River Valley Century ride. She performed flawlessly on this ride and has only squabbled with me when I didn't change her chain in time and she made me change the cassette and large chain ring too. It is only the first year in our relationship and I will learn what she needs and when she needs it.

Update 4/14/10 34,744 miles and the Frame cracked at the dropouts, Cannondale will replace or upgrade frame, too soon to tell which way we are going.
