Recently voted best place to live by Money Magazine. It's a great place to ride; head east for flats and small rollers, head west for beautiful hill/mountain rides. Couldn't ask for a better variety.
Anyway, my name is Stephanie and my husband, Steve, has been visiting the forum for a while so I thought I would join up.
I've been riding off and on for about 10 years but really started riding seriously in '01 when I started training for triathlons. I've been a tennis player for 25 years, tore my ACL and MCL playing in a tournament in 1999, got out of shape from the inactivity and used tri training as a way to get back into shape. I discovered that I really don't like swimming and switched to duathlons last year. I like running but I really love cycling. So, I'm not racing this summer, just riding as much as I can.
I got a Titus Exogrid this summer (won't be getting birthday or Xmas gifts for a few years. ) and I have a Litespeed Arenburg. No kids, but two awesome Golden Retrievers, Hannah and Caesar.
I'm going thru withdrawl here in NYC; used to live in Kansas City...no problem getting Fat Tire on tap and all the rest at the local liquor store there Will have to keep an eye out for Skinny Dip the next time I'm in KC.
My husband and I grew up in Colorado Springs. Moved to Fort Collins to attend CSU and never left. We love it. I can certainly understand how your wife feels about humidity. Growing up in Colorado, I can't stand it above 10%.
I lived in the springs twice as a child , once for a year when I was 2 , but then again during Kindergarten and 1st grade, which I remember as much as I remember anything. I like Colorado. Maybe she'll get her way....
