Hello from Santa Cruz

Hello everyone! My name is Emily, I am 27 years old, living in Santa Cruz, CA. I quit smoking 4 months ago and started running. I bought an entry-level road bike (2005 Giant OCR2) for “cross-training” and love it so much that now I have to remind myself to save time for the running. I am logging 80 to 100 miles a week and wish I had time to ride more. I bartend 6 nights a week, and love my friends, but they all blink blankly at me when I bring up cycling, rib on my funny shoes and helmet, and calmly go back to their cigarettes and whiskey. I know there are tons of bike enthusiasts in my area, but I don’t seem to run into them in my bar. Anyway, this seems like a very friendly forum and I look forward to participating and learning!

-Emily

congrats on quitting the cigs. i gave up nicotine a while ago myself.

don't sweat the friends... everyone connects with their friends on different things and you've got plenty of cycling buddies right here. enjoy.

Hi Emily, be sure to check out the Santa Cruz County Cycling Club. Group rides can be a lot of fun and you can meet some really nice people.

You got that right! Awesome job on the cigs and Lifestyle choice. You're now about to enter the zone of pure exercise euphoria and wellness. All is good and getting better still to come.

Now, go on and ride over to the Crow's nest.
