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...

Tacoma boy...right on!

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.
