    my user name is hippiebikerchick which pretty much says it all. I am a solitary long distance road biker of a "certain age" who took up road biking 4 years ago and has been in love ever since.

    In the interim, I have lost 1/3 of a person and 10 years in age- or at least that's what it feels like.

    I train in and around the suburbs of SW Houston, mostly solo or on occassion with "the SAG guy", my husband of 37 years.

    Every year I do 6-12 century rides locally for charity as well as a cross country ride for breast cancer.

    This year the cross country ride was from San Diego, CA to St. Augustine, FL along the southern tier.

    I have been in recovery mode for most of the summer but am now starting up again with my trainer and riding to get ready for the various fall rides.

    I ride a 2004 Trek pilot 5.1 with aerobars and when I grow up or for my 65th birthday, I want a custom painted, custom designed Trek Madone or the equivalent. I have already started saving my coins.

    Glad to be here

    Welcome! Being accused of "riding like a girl" isn't so bad after all. :rolleyes:

    riding like a girl

    nor is being called a skinny older white woman or SOWW which is what the guys at the local gym call me.

    granted to me by my trainer, an African American former Marine sargent in a rare moment of whimsy, and because I am in the minority in several ways at that particular gym.
