I am located in Summerville SC. 50 yards out my front door, I pick up a paved trail alone a drainage ditch. 15 miles end to end. That's where we do most of our riding. I work a NIGHT SHIFT, sleep morning, and ride in the afternoons.
Currently riding a Jamis Allegra 2X. Been riding off and on the last 12 years. Did a thousand miles one year. Look forward to obtaining another road bike, and longer miles.
