Hello from Tampa Bay
I used to ride and repair bikes as a kid, but I haven't ridden until recently. In April 2005, I bought my first decent bike, a Specialized Sirrus which is a comfort road bike to get in better shape. At the time I was about 110 pounds overweight.
Eleven months (on March 1, 2006) and 50 pounds later, I got my first real road bike, a Specialized Roubaix. It now has 3,900 miles on it.
Three weeks ago, I discovered mountain biking. My third ride was last Sunday at Alafia River State Park. What a blast! I rode the intermediate (blue) and expert (single black diamond) trails. I'm riding a Schwinn Sierra LE. It's a cushy tail with grip shifters. It's a terrible bike that's a pain to shift but it got me started. I'm definitely hooked. I've got my eye on a Specialized FSR XC Pro full-suspension bike with air shocks and hydraulic disc brakes.
Thanks for reading. Ride-on!
