I'm new to this group. I spend the last few years in the unicycle group, but now I'm commuting to work 10.5 miles each way, and have no time for the uni. I rode my uni last year for the first day of the Hilly Hundred.
Anyway, I rode with a the local bike group when I was in Jr. High and High School and even had a small bike shop in my parents garage. Now I'm back riding and fixing other peoples bikes for fun.
I ride a TREK mountain bike that was left at an apartment my son lives in. I had to rebuild it, and even painted the frame, put slick tires on it, and bought some pedals & shoes w/ cleats from EBAY for it.
