Hello from the Peninsula

Been lurking for awhile and realized I should introduce myself. My name is Gary and I live on the mid-peninsula in the San Francisco Bay Area. I spent most of my youth on the bike and then took a 15-year break from it. In Early October I began commuting to work 5 days a week and haven't stopped since. I now ride 7 days a week, rain or shine. It's like dope, I can't stop even if I wanted to. My girlfriend and I try to get in at least one recreational ride a week. I ride an old rigid Trek mountain bike that I bought from a friend. Used to do some light trail riding, but it's gradually been converted to a full-time commuter. I hope to pick up a newer, dedicated mountain bike sometime this coming year.
