So l used to go on rides with some friends but they all stopped for various reasons over a decade ago.
I never enjoyed going out on my own so my 1999 Marin Attack Trail gathered dust.
This year some friends asked me to find bikes second hand for them, which l did.
This got me thinking was l too old to get back into it myself?
I sold the Marin and bought a Cube LTD. What followed was a realisation of how much fun l had been missing!
To hell with it. I was not totally unfit as l had been doing some walking.
I used to be a bit of a headcase on descents so after a few months sold the Cube and bought a Kona full suspension.
So far l have not looked back! My fitness level is slowly improving and l can now manage a local 10 mile route which is all either up or down, so fairly hard work.
And best of all l have discovered that l now really enjoy going out on my own, although l do have a couple of friends that l sometimes go out with.
Long may the fun continue!
