Hi Guys I am new to the forum , I'm 53 and just started road Cycling again in December after a 25 year break , I live in North Wales , I am in the lucky position of being a househusband , So i can get out whenever i wish as our Son is in School .. .. I am only doing around 20 miles everyone day and 30/35 miles on a Saturday / Sunday .. I am slowly adding the miles , I started out with 5 / 8 miles .. then 10 to 15 .. now 20 / 35 ... This has been down to weather and illness , I suffer from Colitis , Which the hospital are now getting under control .. If any of your have the same illness you will understand how draining it can be .. It's the same illness that hit Darren Fletcher the Man Utd player .. I cover 20 miles in around 1hr 10mins .. That is up in Buckley / Wrexham area .. I brought a Cube Agree race pro in December , When doing a 30 sportif i had a fall and bent the mech hanger , It snapped 2 days later , Lucky for me it did , as my local bike shop here in Buckley, found a crack in the seat post , So took the bike back to Climbonbikes , who fitted a new frame .. I am loving getting out and trying to get fit and being a MAMIL !!
