    Good deal. It's been wet outside and haven't been on mine.

    Old age caught up with me and 10-15 is my limit.

    How come I get yelled at when I point out that very same chronological statistic?

    It's always more painful when someone else points it out. :wavey:

    10 miles is much better than zero - just keep the blood moving!

    Not a die-hard rider but I just bought an odometer so I will be able to track my mileage this summer - maybe a little incentive to ride more often.

    I took my bike out after years of not having it out. I rode 1 mile at the most and i was completely out of breath. It felt so hard to pedal. Then I took it home and realized, I had a flat tire!

    Good for you!!!

    I just started too, my dog has a 12.5 mile endurance test to do, and he is required to run beside my bike.

    We are starting out slow, getting ready to go do a 4 mile in a few.

    What were you wearing on your ride???

    10 isn't bad for your first ride of the season, but really 10 miles isn't worth getting dressed for. I try for at least 30 a day, some days 60.
    Yes, I'm 60 years old and I rode 7,054.7 miles last year.

    Good for you, now keep it up, put some playing cards in the spokes and remember what it was like as a kid!
