My name is Darrin, and I am an avid (though quite amatuer) bicyclist located in Idaho's scenic and amazing Treasure Valley. I've been riding for almost as long as I can remember, but only seriously took up bicycle commuting when I was 15, had no car, and lived about 12 miles away from most of the entertainment options for the weekends. I have cycled off and on in a random cycle since then, but have been getting more and more into riding over the last two years.
My passions of late have been in the restoration of 1970's and 1980's road bikes into riding condition, and I am currently most often seen on a 1982 Centurion LeMans. It's blue and beautiful.
I mostly started visiting this site seeking information and advice about tandem bikes as the Sugarplum Terrorist (aka Beloved Stoker) and I are planning on using one so we can ride together instead of just at the same time.
Thus far, I have really enjoyed reading the forums here, especially the tandem forurm, for all the friendliness and quality of advice offered.
