I'm never sure what to write in these things or if anyone actually reads them, so I'll just stick with the questions posed in the stickied topic explaining what to do.
Where are you from?
I am from the Lake Sunapee area in New Hampshire (though I'm originally from Connecticut and went to school in Maine so, I suppose I'm from New England if you want to get technical).
What do you ride?
I currently don't ride much of anything though the bike I have sitting in the basement is a Fuji Thrill mtb. I got the bike to replace a cheap but, well loved and used Murphy mtb I rode the snot out of prior to getting my driver's license and then off and on through my sophomore year in college. The bike saw a lot of use in Lake Tahoe when I was there for ten weeks. There are trails all over the place out there and it was wonderful, though I couldn't compete with the professionals there.
I'm currently in the market for a road bike, though I suspect I'll end up just swapping the saddle off my husband's (supton) bike and lowering the seat a cm or so and steal whatever new bike he gets since all but our hip and shoulder widths are the same and I don't want to spend a lot of money on a bike until I'm sure it's something I'm going to get into enough to spend the gobs of money on a new bike for myself.
How long have you been riding?
On and off since I learned to ride a bike (don't ask me when that was). I was actually a pretty hardcore road rider the couple years before I got my driver's license only I did it all on a mtb and didn't have any of the proper equipment for the 20+ mile rides I took almost every day.
I haven't been back on a bike much at all for the past 5 years. I tried using my husband's bike but, the saddle is a real problem. Even my mtb doesn't seem to get the job done anymore and I suspect the saddle as the culprit there as well since I have real women's hips and I never traded off the men's saddle that came with the bike.
Anything else we should know about you?
Well, I think you've already got the full biking story (more than you bargained for, I'll bet) but, in addition to my sudden desire to take up biking again (fueled no doubt by my husband's fervor) I am site manager for a Harry Potter community website, SnitchSeeker.com, I taught myself to crochet off internet tutorials last summer and really love it, and I am going to attempt to complete my masters in biochemistry in the next few years while staying at home with my kids and trying to get back into road biking.
