    PT newbie

    Hi to all,

    Obviously, I am new to the forums offered. I have an almost life-long love affair with bikes, but as a non-competitor (I was a an open-water swimmer).

    I grew up in coastal San Diego (Pacific Beach), where cycling was easy (pretty much level) and beautiful (can't beat the Pacific Ocean, IMHO). I lived in Mission Beach while I was going to San Diego State in the 70's, and bikes were a BIG part of my 'hood. We rode the seawall many times a day (you had to be there) and spent a big part of the rest of the time working on our cruisers and road bikes. In 1973, I moved to Santa Monica to go to UCLA Law School (alright, I AM an attorney, but I love bikes!). At that point, I had an Olmo Special, fully Campy-equipped, and that bike served me well (back and forth to school, Pacific Coast Highway rides on the weekends) all the way up until just a matter of weeks before I graduated. I rode down 18th Street (home) to buy a loaf of bread (no kidding), and when I came out, my bike was gone.

    I am now the owner of a great tie to the former existence. I just bought a beautiful, Campy-equipped, classic road bike at an estate sale, that I just happened upon. I love this bike! It renews my soul when I get on it here in Port Townsend, where I now live. If this is karma, I am all for it.

    Whoa! Classic road bike? Port Townsend? You are living the life many of us only dream of!

    C & V forum, with photos. Then, to the Pacific Northwest regional forum where the rest of us can meet you!

    What's the bike?

    Welcome to BF!
