Hiya. I came to the Bike Forums by way of bicycling.com. I was looking for info on a new bike. I discovered I really like it here. I drop in a lot even though I don't comment all that much.
I'm 42. I live in Northern California, near Lake Tahoe. (where you're either going UP or DOWN, but never flat) I started out riding MTB. I bought my first road bike to get into better shape for offroad and just fell in love with it. For the last 2 years the road has been my passion. I don't race but I do like long rides. This year I managed to survive the entire Markleevill Deathride. ... And thank God I never have to do that again.
I work the graveyard shift in the ER of the small local hospital. Most of my training/ riding is done alone because of my unusual schedule. It's a good thing the scenery is pretty around here!
That about covers it... Oh yeah, 2 cats, no kids.
And btw, I did get the bike: Sampson Silverton, carbon forks, Kestrel Pro handlebars, Campy Chorus 10. LOVE it!
