hello, i am james.
I'm from missouri and i ride an IRO Mark V Single Speed atm. got into biking from my friend dave (subcultro), who is a member of this forum, but my interest in cycling really took off for me when i moved to japan for 6 months. Where you either cycle to work or take the train. Also, my girlfriend that i met in japan is from copenhagen (kobenhavn), denmark and apparently everyone bikes there, and after visiting a few times, a month at a time, it really got me fired up to buy a bike.
So far i've had my bike for a month and have +270 miles on biking trips, and probably another 50-75miles on commuting to school, gym, and work.
I am really interested into doing 2 or 3 day long trips of 150-200 miles a day, ive actually planned a trip this saturday (aug 3) to goto denmark to do this, hopefully i can get another 60-100miles of riding before i leave.
