    Bike Hello

    Hi,I enjoy all bikes and live in NW Wa. where the trails and roads are good.Lately my interest is in self supported touring.Just sitting in and liking the biking forum. Turning 54 and need a boost to keep up my riding as work has separated me from my bikes for a year or so.Back on in a day or so with a tour of the west coast for 25-30 days.Hope to ride myself into shape. Closest way to hobo for me is on my tourer. Enough intro so will look to others for stories of all sorts.Steve.

    Northwest Washington...that's a big area Steve. Could we get you to check into the Pacific Northwest regional forum, and narrow it down a tad? What kind of bikes have you got?

    Enjoy your tour, and

    Welcome to BF!

    Oh, we have a relatively new member in Sedro Wooley who's looking for fellow riders in the Skagit Valley. He's known as F.T.W.

    Me? I've got 12 bikes and counting. A little bit of MTB, mostly a fascination with old steel bikes. One of these days I'm going to learn how to do more than bunnyhop with BMX. Touring is certainly in my sights within a couple of years. I'm off in a few hours to British Columbia, hoping that I can get in some MTB up there...

    Hello, I have been delayed from tour and just recieved messages.How was Vancouver? Old steel bikes are really nice. I have had some fun on new lightweights and still do but I really enjoy older lugged steel frames. The classics last alot longer and need alot less repairs for being such bargains. What Mtn. biking area in the NW do you ride? Let me know so I can explore new trails.Talk to you later.S.

    Hello Steve, you should come visit us in the C & V forum--bring photos . I went to Gotchen Lake, outside of 100 Mile House--it's a great lodge, very quiet (no internet access, though ). I normally just go around Lake Youngs Reservoir for the MTC--it's got some routine, but hilly, doubletrack. I also get out and occasionally ride some of Weyerhaeuser's gated logging roads (not the active ones ), and also have gone once or twice to Capitol Forest.
