Joining the fun
Hey, my name is Bruce and I'm from Houston, lived and worked here most of my life.
I'm a semi retired architect and designer in the petrochemical industry and am just trying
to shift gears into a new hobby that's more physical, since I've ridden and tinkered
with bicycles since about age six, just kinda took em for granted. Had a paper route
for about a decade from child to teen, so I've got a lot of experience carrying a load
on a bike. Got away from bike riding for long periods, but always came back and now
I've got some time to make it a priority for health reasons...keeps the blood flowing.
I've got three bikes right now after owning about a dozen over my lifetime, but I never
really had a chance to focus in on it, like I do now. More to come later.
