Hey guys, I'm a 41 year old father of four from Fort Worth. I'm in to all forms of cycling and have been riding road, mountain, and track bikes since 1987. I used to do some road and mountain bike racing but have recently gatten into relaxed easy paced riding in t shirts and sneakers, no more Lycra. I've got a blog at http://rattrappress.blogspot.com. I've also got a shop on Etsy (http://rattrappress.etsy.com) where I sell bike related t shirts that I screen print in my garage. I ordered a Surly Long Haul Trucker from a local shop a couple of weeks ago, it hasn't arrived yet, but I'm ready to try some touring.
