I'm finally registering after lurking here for a few months now. I'm 25, living in Utah. I feel lame compared to everyone else here because my bike is this lame-o schwinn something or other that I picked up at Sears for under $100 so I could make my 12 mile round trip commute to work everyday. Gas was up to $2.30 per gallon so I finally said to hell with driving every day (even if it is only 12 miles). Turns out, cycling is addicting like crack cocaine. Now, in addition to commuting- my boyfriend and I ride to any destination possible and sometimes days go by where my car isn't even thought of. In the last 7 days I drove my car once to work (and nowhere else) only because I had an errand to run during the day that was about 20 miles away, and my lunch hour just isn't long enough .
Anyway, here I am
