    I have started to ride more starting last year, riding over 1600 miles just here in the state of Colorado at the age of 67, where just a few years ago, I couldn't hardly get up out of the recliner to walk across the room. I am losing weight and feeling a whole lot better, it is wonderful to add the miles on a bicycle, its a mountain bike converted to a rode bike, after adding a few new items. I am not a racing person, just ride along at a happy pace of 14 to 15 mph. Oh, yes I have had a few road crashes without any serious injuries. It is the drivers that bother me, many people have NO patients for some people riding bikes. I have a couple close calls. What is it about drivers that want to stop and fight and cause problems?

    Welcome to the forums! Drivers can be tough but the fun of riding usually outweighs the upset that some auto's cause.
