I went from road riding in the 90’s then to MTB trail riding for about ten years following Y2K. I crashed and burned one day and suffered a type III shoulder separation requiring three surgeries to repair also suffered three broken ribs in that event. I continued to ride MTB style bike but limited my rides to paved or gravel trails. Back in the 90’s I was a member of AABTS for a while. I don’t recall why I dropped my membership but I am back. I am an engineer by education and worked for 47 years in the auto industry. 39 of those years were with GM/Delphi. I retired in 2016 so have more time to enjoy group rides. I recently purchased an e-bike (really helps on the hills). I am looking forward to new routes, new friends and new experiences.
