Were back in the saddle again!

Hello, this is our new Bicycle Blog, we were without bicycles for almost 2 years as we had to sell off our bicycles to get a down payment for our 2014 H-D 883 XL883L Sportster Super Low motorcycle. This is our re-start as we've picked up a couple of used "ridged" MTB's from the 1990's and are using them as "Rail Trail" bikes to ride all the local area rail trails here in Colorado Springs, CO. :)
We've owned bicycles on and off since we were kids, We seriously started riding a lot in 1982 with the purchase of touring bicycles and joining the Strada Bicycling Club. I had a upgrade to a Univega 18 speed Specialisima and in 1985 bought my fist MTB, a Raleigh Mt. Crestted Butte. We had a long period without bicycles, then in 1995 we bought Fuji comfort bikes, traded for Jamis MTB's, then different hybrids, Sun Recumbents and even a Trek recreational Tandem! We are now on used MTB's. I currently ride a 1993 Mongoose Switchback and Jo rides a 1994 Nishiki Bravo A.
