New here.....came over here to see what everyone had to say about Stacey. I have no idea what happened here but she wound up at the Love Forum on Bicycling forums. The Love Forum is now officially known as Refugee Rat's Love Forum. Refugee Rat is the handle she chose for herself there. In a short time, I got to know her. And a what an impact in my life. Amazing person. I was pleased to see that she was welcomed back here. She has not been far from my thoughts.
I am a fairly new cyclist...took up road bikes seriously in 2003. Currently have 4 road bikes, a Klein, two Treks and a brand new Ottrott. Two trail bikes, two mountain bikes and a beater for just kicking around on my farm. Early 60's with a checkered medical history. Two cardiovascular surgeries, cancer surgery and two cataract surgeries in the past 8 years. Have been to the Tour de France three times...'03, '04 & '05. I believe riding Mt. Ventoux is the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. Primarily a recreational rider.
Live on a big farm in southcentral Wisconsin with my SO, Anne, and our crazed border collie, Skip.
