After 30 plus years this 60 yr old bald fat guy is back in the saddle again! To improve health & fitness I had to confront diet & exercise. So 3 months ago a massive diet change and cycling became a way of life. Amazing results so far! I rode excellent quality road bikes in late 60’s, 70’s and early 80’s but quit after getting a real job, marriage, kids, motorcycles and the rest. Last November I got a new single speed, all rigid, steel, 29er MTB to ride gravel and horse trails around my place. I love that bike! Then I cleaned up a nice 2006 Cannondale 1000 to use as an everyday commuter and this also worked out well. A couple of weeks ago the decision to do some light touring was made and I’m excited about it. After I reach my targeted weight I will treat myself to a new touring bike. I hope to gain knowledge on touring bikes, touring in general and maybe thoughts and advice from the 60+ crowd. Cooker
