I'm another newbie, although this isn't my very first post. I like to exchange bicycling touring stories and information, but more than information about bicycles I like to hear about places and people that have been encountered on a bicycle.
On my blog I identify myself by saying, "The Spokesrider lives in southwest Michigan. He goes on bicycling expeditions to places where he can say, "Black Hawk Slept Here." But that phrase gets interpreted very broadly. Almost any excuse to ride to a place of settlement-era history will do."
