    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.

    Many welcomes to BikeForums, Tessa! You'll fit in well.
