Hey, from the North Olympic Peninsula

I'm from Port Angeles, WA. I just bought a Specialized Roubaix (my old road bike is a Cannondale R600). I try to ride as many organized event rides per year as possible (e.g., Seattle to Portland 4th year, Chilly Hilly 2nd year, Flying Wheels 3rd year, etc.). I commute about 16 - 20 miles (round trip) to work and back as often as possible. I started a local advocacy group called the Alternate Transportation Advocacy of Port Angeles in order to pursue the enhancement of this area's bicycle trail/path transportation network (e.g., getting the city/county/state to create more bike lanes and chip seal free road shoulders). Most of all, I can't stand lining Big Oil's pockets with my hard earned money OR polluting the atmosphere and contributing to climate change so I RIDE! Besides, I love those moments when I feel like I'm 17 again and flying just above the asphalt.

Hi BikeManPA, are we going to see you at the Kitsap Classic this year? Don't forget to visit the regional forum and say hi to the rest of us Puget Sounders.
