Chris In Philadelphia
Hello, Long time lurker.
I'm a student in Philadelphia studying animation. Biking has always come naturally for me and has always been the preferred mode of transportation (Although I read MotorTrend and enjoy cars in other respects).
More recently I have become fond of long distance rides. Did my first in august of 2003 at around 25 miles round trip and since have done the York County rail trail to the Maryland line a few times over (once with my 12 year old sister in tow) and York city to Lancaster city at 53 miles. I'm aiming for a possible York To Philadelphia this summer. I don't know, I like the good ol' Lincoln Highway.
I currently ride a free spirit picked up off someones lawn for 10$, a '89ish GT Mach One BMX, and my newest, An Alpha fixed gear. The only original part on it is the frame so kinda happy about that, Im from Philly, I know the bad reputation. But i can't take the credit for the wrench work. Bought it used off CL.
Currently falling to pieces and riding it brakeless freewheel.
In need of some TLC but I always take it down to the beach with a fresh wash,grease and scrub (but the rust comes right back 2 weeks later, must be the salt air)
The bike with the bad rep. I'm so prowd.....
