Another one

Hey There--
I've got a friend who's nuts about this site,so I figured it was time
I get on board! I'm a roadie who hates the wind, but knows it makes me
stronger. Since I live in the Delta area of N.California, the wind is
ever-present part of my training. Throw in Mt. Diablo on occassion and
I;m a happy camper.

Pedal On--

Welcome to the Forum! Hope you find as much enjoyment as your friend. May the wind give you lift as often as it gives you force.

Hello Orbea J--does this mean you have an Orbea, or are aspiring to have one ? You have a lot of neighbours over there in the Bay Area (besides your nutty friend ), so perhaps you could wander over there one day and say hello to the rest of the Northern California crowd.

Welcome to BF!

I hear you regarding the wind. You just have to keep riding/fighting the wind and just like with climbing, you just get better at it. Welcome to the BF, Orbea!

One, regarding locale: eastern CC. A'och, if the truth be told.
Two, regarding my beloved Spanish steed: I ride a four-yr old Orbea
Race Dama, tho I lust after the new Orbeas. Why have children if you
can ride an Orbea?
