I'm Steve, aka "NYJayhawk".
Here's my story:
Live outside of NYC, married, 2 kids. Love riding. Also an avid golfer (13 hdcp), skier, and play drums in a garage band.
Started riding 3 years ago for exercise on a Trek 7300fx hybrid fitness bike. Loved it immediately. Spent two and 1/2 years on the Trek, did a couple of centuries on it, and many rides in the 65-75 mile range. In September, I upgraded to a Ridley Excalibur, and am loving riding more than ever.
