Just kidding, actually I'm more of a reformed Couch potato(e). I've always liked going for short little jaunts but never anything outrageous like commuting to work. But that's what I'm doing. It's about 15 miles each way. I bought a Trek 6700 several years ago, but serving on a submarine doesn't leave much time for family let alone ridding. So now that I'm on shore duty I feel it's time to crank it up a bit, save some money on gas, and lose all the excess weight I've put on the last 5 years. Hopefully in a bit I'll have the money for a decent road bike and be able to go on all day rides.
