    Old Guy here.:evilgrin: I'm thinking of putting an engine on one of my mountain bikes. Since I am a complete noob, this site looks like it will be a big help.

    I live in Waynesboro, Virginia, over the mountains from Charlottesville. Beautiful area. I do a lot of biking, but loaded touring on the Blue Ridge Parkway is getting tougher for me every year. So, an engine assist seems like a good idea.

    Sperlonga is my mother's seaside village near Naples, Italy.

    Hello, and Welcome! I'm new here myself, I'm from NH, but travel to, and through VA frequently. It's on my short list for retirement states in a few years.

    Virginia Is A Great Place To Retire

    Welcome to the forum. Virginia is a great place to retire. I spent my IBM career in Vermont. We retired here in the Blue Ridge Mountains about 8 years ago. Love it, although the hills on the Blue Ridge parkway are brutal when you are loaded down with bike touring gear. I am building my Trek mountain bike with the Staton friction drive and the Honda GX 35 to help me with the mountains. I should be on the road with my motorized Trek in a few days. I am looking forward to it.
