    Saying hello...

    Just taking the time to introduce myself to the forum...

    I've been riding a road bike for a few years now. It's great fun, but I keep dusting my boyfriend on the hills So we've decided to get a tandem. That's how I found the forum. I've read the past couple of week's postings and have learned quite a lot! Looking forward to being part of the forum and sharing my passion for bikes.

    I first started riding a Specialized Epic of my boyfriend's. That was enough to get my hooked. I bought my Look K461 last year and love every mile! To me, it's an awesome bike with a great ride.

    They ARE niiiiccceee! I'm so lucky. I walked into the bike store and it was love at first sight. I took several bikes out for a spin but I couldn't get over the ride of the LOOK. It was the right size frame, components and price. I left with my dream machine and have never regretted it.

    I wouldn't say that I'm a serious cyclist by a long stretch. I just love getting out and riding. I try to ride at least 2 to 3 days a week; more if work permits(right now, work and life aren't permitting ). We're trying a tandem because he can drop me in a flash on the flats and I do the same to him on the hills. We figured that it was the best way to combine our talents.

    Probably! We ride out at Cherry Creek res. a lot and have started riding the C470 paved trail to Golden. Great route, if you take it all the way to the hog back. There's a planned ride to do Deer Creek sometime this weekend and Squaw Pass next I'm only hopin' and prayn' for a break of this heat!

    I live just south of the south side of CCSP.

    Do the loop and head down to CC mall and back, parking at Jordan and Belleview.

    Like to ride Chatfield, and last week rode the entire length of the Platte River Trail, from Chatfield to north in Adams County - 60 miles round trip.

    Have fun.

    Will be doing CC and the mall on Monday.
