    new from Portland, OR

    Hey there- I am a 37 y.o. F in P-town, I have been here for the past few years. Moved out from the Midwest (I know, a common story)...

    I met donnamb at a friend's art opening the other weekend... She introduced me to this site and invited me to go. Awesome lady!

    I currently have been working back up to regular riding capacity after several years of struggling with some health issues... I try to do a little bit each week but my consistency is kind of spotty. I like to bike to commute and to have fun mostly. I've never been in good enough shape to ride in events-- although in Portland we have a few shorter rides I might like to try.

    Right now I own a Jamis commuter mountain/road hybrid bike (brand new & I love that thing!), also an old FrankenBMX and several push and electric scooters/mopeds. I really like the idea of alternative fuel transportation.

    Drop by & say hi if you wish. See you on the forums.

    Hey there!

    Glad you made it. Hope the job hunting is going well...
