Greetings from the Enchanted Island of Puerto Rico; Saludos y un abrazo desde Borinquen! I'm from San Juan, PR, and I've been on a bike since the age of 6. First little cruisers, then BMX. Back to cruisers and mountain bikes (remember the Muddy Fox in neon green?!?!), and then road. Recently SS/fix. At 41, I'm still a kid who likes tinkering, so I have: 80's Diamond Back MTB converted to SS; 1995 Trek 370; 1968 Royce Union road bike converted to fix gear; 2009 Huffy "MTB"for running errands. I enjoy Sunday rides from Rio Piedras down to Loiza, and enjoy bacalaitos and alcapurrias with agua de coco or beer (cod fish fritters, plantain fritter filled with minced and spiced beef, and coconut water drank from the coconut, so you know the lingo), which might explain my "Clydesdale figure". Anyhow, salutations, and a warm welcome to all who will visit us anytime soon!:thumb::thumb::thumb:

Well 10Wheels, you're more than welcome to enjoy our "delicacies",so be sure to register for the 2012 "Vuelta a Puerto Rico" (Tour of Puerto Rico), to be held in January. Coastal rides; great food; unbelievable times. You (and anyone interested) can check it out or register at www.vueltapr.com (http://www.vueltapr.com). Cheers!

Doing the Vuleta is one of my future goals as well as a dream. Not ready for it yet; maybe in 2013. http://www.bicycling.com/news/featured-stories/my-bike-went-puerto-rico

Thanks, and Happy New Year to all. For my Boricuan friends, Feliz dia de Reyes!!! Having a great time; temperatures hovering aroun 76 degrees humidity not more than 60% in San Juan, not much rain. Can't beat that for nice riding in the Island! Been out on the fixie, and thinking of getting a new project (remember, N+1!) ... How about a mini velo! Has to be homemade, and cheap !!! we'll see what comes out! This year I won't be able to attend the Vuelta:notamused: Well people, thanks for sharing my new year's ponderations. See you soon!:thumb:

I am from Ponce, PR. Long ago. I moved to SoFla in '58. I too am a clydesdale. Need to lose 60 and will soon get started. I ride Raleighs: 2009 Cadent FT2, flat bar road bike with 24 speeds. Also have a '94 RT500 roadie, lightweight 60CM. Looking for riders in Northern Palm Beach county to ride Jupiter Island to Hobe Sound & back to Jupiter Beach. Love the Boriqua food! We don't have PR restaurants in Palm Beach county (that I know of). As a boy of 14 I used to ride to Adjuntas from Ponce on a single speed with hub brake only. It was possible if you hooked up to a slow truck (uphill). Fred Castro, Jupiter, FL
