I am now into bike riding as well. This along with my interest in trains. They somewhat go hand in hand as there are some great rail trails to ride and explore. I have a Cannondale F3 Mountain Bike and a Giant Defy Road Bike. I have always loved to bike ride and after dropping over 100lbs by using Weight Watchers, I got back into shape to do riding again. Ride and explore in the summer and fall. Work on the model railroad and photography in the winter and muddy spring.
As for my bike riding, the day before Hurricane Irene hit I was out in Deerfield, MA riding the D2R2 100k bike ride. Sheer Torture but fun. I know that does no make sense but I am looking forward to it next year. I did not see any trains, but saw some train tracks. As winter comes closer, and the clocks are about the to change, it will be back into the basement to work out my body and work out on the layout. I am also helping a friend on his basement empire, by building some structures for him. I hope to get a few more rides in soon.
