Hello All, Refugee Here.

Hello all. My name is Tom and I hail from Oakland, CA but I am currently living in Boise, ID (hence the term "refugee"). I have been cycling in some fashion for decades. Whether commuting as a child, working as a messenger in San Francisco/Oakland or taking of on spontaneous solo touring trips across the country, I have always straddled two wheels in some fashion. I am looking forward to meeting you all and comparing notes!

Yes, it was terrible. A frozen world of slippery terror. A "white knuckle" winter, it was.
