    Hi From Fort Collins, CO

    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.

    That's all for now.

    Stephanie

    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....
