Welcome to Vital Matt! I wish you the best with your surgery and hope you have a speedy recovery and are able to start shredding soon. I just started back up last February after being off the bike for far too long. I've been having fun learning how to ride park and street, and just enjoying learning stuff I couldn't do as a kid. With your proximity to Chicago and Rockford, you've got a pretty good scene down there and I'm sure you'll find some good people to ride with. Good luck, and cheers!

Well right off the bat, for me personally, I'm about 40lbs heavier, more joint injuries and 1/16 the core strength than I had 20 years ago when I was hardcore in to riding. Now I have more body to throw around and less fitness to do it! ;-) LOL

I took some time and wrote a book called "The Average BMXer", which chronicles what I went through as the average every day rider in New Jersey doing his thing in the early days...up to about last year.
I tried to tell "our story" of the normal dude riding who was never a superstar but loved what they did...
I have it on lulu.com as an epub and kindle, it's also a hardcover but it's mad expensive.
If anyone is looking to waste some time reading...this is where you can find it.
