    Greetings from the Land of Lincoln!

    Hello, everyone. I'm your typical bike enthusiast whose love for riding is exceeded only his love for craft beers and encased meats. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your point of view), I seem to have more time for the beer and encased meats than I do for riding. As such, I'm carrying a few extra pounds that I'd like to ride off.

    A good week for me means 50-60 miles, a number I would like to increase. I roll on a 1997 Specialized Stumpjumper with road tires, which will occasionally get switched out for knobbies to go ride among the trees. I also have a 1992 Hardrock from my college days as well as several vintage Schwinns I collected before I got married and had kids.
