What's your ride (In order of preference: Road, MTB, Hybrid)?

For road riding in the area I use my 1989 Vitus French aluminum racing bike, but for touring abroad I take my Bike Friday New World Tourist. Pretty much stopped mountain biking after rupturing my quadricep in 1997. Still have the great Bridgestone MB-1 in my stable of seven bikes.

How often do you, or would like to, ride (per week or month)?

Would like to ride about three times a week.

How long or far is your average ride?

About 30 miles.

What are some of your favorite ride locations?

Paved trails in Contra Costa County.

Interested in helping organize rides (Yes, No, Maybe)?



Aging cyclist living in retirement in Rossmoor. Avid cyclist since 1979 with bicycle touring in 28 countries. Working back up to do Metric Centuries after several months lay off. Bicycle advocate doing considerable work East Bay Bicycle Coalition.
