Greetings from (not so) Sunny Northern California

Hi - My name is Tim Bustos, and I'm brand spanking new to this list, so I wanted to introduce myself. I'm a lifelong bike commuter and bicycle transportation activist. I've worked with bikes professionally for most of my career, and I work with a number of bike coalitions around the country to improve conditions for cyclists. I'm completely immersed in bike culture and rarely drive, so I have a number of bikes for specific purposes - and some I ride just because they're a whole lot of fun (but aren't they all?). I own road bikes, a mountain bike, several folders, a couple of vintage bikes, a highwheel replica, and three unicycles. When I'm not on two wheels, mountain unicycling is also a passion - a single wheel on single track is great cross training!

I look forward to sharing ideas, information, and inspiration, so I hope I have something to offer to others on this list.

Tailwinds,
Tim

It sure sounds like you have a lot to offer to several of our forums Tim, welcome!

Never having tried unicycling, I can't imagine even trying it on single track, you have my admiration for that accomplishment alone!
