Hi from the wonderful state known as C

My name is Gerd Blanston, and I'm a recovering road racer. (HI GERD!) I realize now it was destroying my life, my career, my marriage. Thankfully I've moved on to other, less time-consuming self-destructive behaviors. Thank you for your support.

I live in CT and I ride year round. Summers I get about 150 a week. Winters I do about 75 a week outdoors on a single speed MB-1 with cruiser tires on account of because they grip well in salt and sand, and also this kid said they would make me cool. The looks I get from people when I ride around with equally frozen water bottles and gonads amuse me.

Stay safe out there.

Hi Gerd!

Are you equally cool in the summer, or just when you are frozen in the winter ?

Welcome to BF either way!

Gerd,
Welcome. I remember you quite well. Back in '87 at Cat's Hill Crit I was the guy you made crash. I never forget a name and yours is impossible to forget. I hope you leaned how to properly close quick releases now. That was a disaster.
