I like to ride my bicycle

Hi! I was directed to this site by some lovely new friends I made on McClinchy and Daffodil, so here I am!
I'm not good with introductions, so I'm going to basically use the suggestions made by Joe.
I'm a Seattle transplant-been here almost 7 years, which is crazy! I'm still not completely over the fact that I've lived in one place for so long. I ride a 2005 Bianchi Brava and I love her. I picked up a friend after the STP in '05 and decided that if she could do that, I definitely could, so after an 18 yr hiatus from riding, I went and bought my bike, and I haven't stopped since. This will be my 3rd year on STP, 2nd for Tour de Blast, and I got into RAMROD , so off I go (and I'm scared!!!)
Anyhow, that's my bike life. I'm a fair-weather bike/bus commuter, and I love a good long ride, so you'll see me out there most weekends and hopefully during the week very soon (assuming the snow and hail are done for the year.)

Hi Tessa! I met you at the Daffodil Classic, and I told you I would be the first one to welcome you .

We will see if there's to be snow later--I already had some hail !

Welcome to BF!

Hi Tessa! Good to see you here! (Sorry for the delay... I guess I'm not so observant )

You have to be pretty quick to beat EH to the introductions... I think she sleeps here...

It is nice to hear of so many people going back to using their bikes after long breaks... a lady came into our shop with a bike she had bought thirty years ago (that still looks new) and after a little tuning up and some new tyres she's ready to start commuting in some fine style.

We all love to ride our bicycles here.
