Hey y'all. I'm Chris, hailing most recently from the Oklahoma City area, formally Maine. Did a lot of road riding during my high school years, fading down to some mountain riding while stationed in Guam and Montana, and then stopped altoghether. After coming to the realization that some of my happiest moments have been on the saddle, I'm back into a decent road bike. I love every minute of it. The only frustration is that I'm still trying to climb like I was a teenager. It seems my bike has gotten lighter, but I haven't. Never did group rides in the past, but did a charity ride the other weekend. I'm hooked! I plan on doing every one I can find the rest of the season, deployments permitting.
