Guess it's time to say hello

Hello from Michigan...great day for a ride today. Did about 25 miles this morning (didn't have my computer so have to guesstimate).

So, a little about me as a cyclist...I got back into riding four years ago on a borrowed bike to lose my baby fat (I'm mom to 5 year old twins). Lost 60+ pounds that first summer and felt really great. Bought my own Mtn. bike that fall and haven't stopped riding since. Every spring/summer, I train for and ride the local MS 150 with some friends (yes, I ride 150 miles on the road on my Mtn bike). While not training for that, I ride a modest 60-100 miles a week. I am a danger to myself (and sometimes others) on the Mtn bike trails, so am currently considering the purchase of a road bike and moving onto the bike paths and roads where I live. Next summer, I hope to add three or four more tours to my schedule.

Who am I when I'm not on the bike? As I said above, I am mom to 5 year old twins (and 7 year old golden ). I recently completed my teaching degree and have been offered my first teaching job. So, in just a couple of weeks, I'll be teaching middle school math.

Cool story. Glad you are here. 60-100 miles a week is nothing to sneeze at. Since you teach math, perhaps you won't critique my disjointed sentences too harshly.

Welcome to Bike Forums. No doubt you'll make new friends here.

Hello <3 2 Ride, do you take the kids and dog with you when you ride? Many people here would not consider 60-100 miles per week to be modest ! You are doing well to fit in that many miles with all the responsibilites you have.

Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !

I have several roadie friends who regularly ride at least twice that. So compared to them, I don't ride much.


Thanks for the welcome. Have been lurking on the boards for a while now and decided that I should "show myself". Looking forward to joining in now.
