    Tacoma Rock City

    Greeting and salutations from Tacoma, WA.

    I've been riding for 20 years, and raced a little when I was a teen. Now I ride when I can, which basically means when the baby situation allows. I'm riding a ten year old LeMond Buenos Aires with 105s all around, and I like it well enough.

    My current obsession is building a bike and racing it. If anyone has any suggestions or warnings on building a first bike or the racing scene (such as it is in Tacoma) fire away. I can take the abuse

    Before I build or race anything, however, I'll need to shake off the slowness...

    Welcome! I went to Charles Wright, class of '05. I love the whole area; I live in Olympia and go to UO. I don't know much about racing in the area, but welcome just the same.

    Actually I spend many a day sluffing it up the Chambers Creek hill not too far from Charles Wright. Good luck at UO.

    Hello and welcome. I'm from Puyallup myself, I use to live in Tacoma and ride around there some. Now I ride the rail to trail from Meeker to South prairie 30 Miles, out to Kanaskat or to Eatonville about 60 miles or to Olympia 100+ miles. If you want to get some miles in feel free to PM me.
