Hi from Duluth, Minnesota

I had a crappy 10-Speed, up until, five weeks ago, when I was finally able to buy my new bike, a Specialized Allez 24-Speed. I wanted to get into biking again. I hadn't been biking since, 1998, when I had an accident because, some jerk rear-ended me. Now, with my new bike, I am passing all the traffic.

A cyclist from the tropics of Mpls, welcomes you. After riding almost to Duluth once in 90F+ , then entering the city the next morning, I met a man who warned me that it was going to be a scorcher that day. I thought, "oh no, not another!" then he said, "yep, it's supposed to hit 75."

As far as passing traffic, is that when you are going up on of those monsterous hills, or down?
