Recently retired. I am getting back into bicycling, after a ~20 year hiatus. Back in the day, I did a few multiday supported rides (STP, RSVP).
Now I ride for either exercise, or to run errands. recently rode 37 miles (round trip) to pick something up. Riding through downtown seattle, in a downpour, made me want to re-think doing this on a bike!
It’s neat to see how bike equipment has improved since then. Too bad that as the bikes get lighter, the locks need to get heavier…
