Hi from NorCal

I noticed that every time I Googled a bike issue, this forum site comes up...so I decided it was time to join.

I've been riding road since spring 2007, and have a few metric and full centuries under my shorts. I never reach the finish line first, but I always have the last laugh!

I just got back from a kick-ass trip to week 3 of the 2011 Tour de France, and got to climb Galibier, d'Huez, Lautaret, and Les Deux Alpes. The scenery and the pain were epic.

I'm in the process of learning roller derby, as well. Between derby and cycling, I don't know where I'll fit in time to work to pay for all this madness.

Welcome to NorCal BikeForums

I second the motion for pics from France.
I need to be even more jealous.
