Good evening from the Washington Coast.
I'm an old track rider, just finished helping raise our kids, and the oval I used to ride on is around my waist instead of under my wheels. I do ride a couple of thousand miles a year and love weight lifting. However with the kids grown up I can refocus some of my cycling activities. I'm a firefighter by trade and a member of the USCG Reserves currently on Active Duty in Astoria, OR. 11 miles to work and 18 home makes for a great day. I'm looking to upgrade my Specialize Allez to something a bit newer, like 12/13 years newer. Man, has there been a lot of changes in technology, but I like it. Especially wheels! I hope to bump my miles up and start racing again in '06. Alpenrose Velodrome is by far my favorite track, but the new indoor track Domingas (spelling?) Hills sounds pretty cool. I found this site while researching a bike I'm interested in. Some pretty good stuff so far. I look forward to talking to folks from all over the world.
