I'm a 25 year-old pre-student teacher, former newspaper writer, former barista. Married 1 year, 3 dogs and 2 cats.
I'm a lifelong enjoyer of cycling, but got a renewed interest in it when I acquired a 70s Schwinn Continental in college. Since then I've been obsessed with working on and riding road bikes. I divide my time between a Peugeot fixed gear conversion that I'm always tweaking and a beautiful Bridgestone RB-T that was the bounty of a housesitting job, but I'm harboring a secret desire for a MTB. I'm mostly a commuter, but I also go on jaunts with my few friends who also ride, as well as the occasional visit to friends in Richmond, VA (big bike town). I believe in cycling as a political statement, and I ride anywhere I can in the small rural PA town I live in, if not for the sheer enjoyment and exercise and lack of gas cost than to piss off the legions of rednecks in pickup trucks.
The wifey and I plan to move to NYC in 2011. Can't wait to ride there.
Anyway, hey everyone, I look forward to discussing one of the best things in the world with you!
