Hey Mike ... Congradulations !!! You should be very proud of yourself .. You are living proof that, it's never to late to get involved in a sport like cycling. It takes a ton of dedication to accomplish what you have done. Thanks for sharing your ride with us. I know the last thing I want to do after a day in the saddle, is sit in front of the computer.
Your a Stud !!!
