I started biking as a kid, graduated to a mountain bike, and got addicted. Alaska and Colorado kept me on my mountain bikes, but when I moved to Oklahoma I discovered road bikes.
About 4 years ago I hung up my bikes. I had just gotten married, and started having kids, so free time to go biking was not on the schedule. I recently started riding my bike to work just to get back in the saddle. My daily commute is 17.5 miles one way, mostly rural with rolling hills, with a few miles of urban arterial roads near work.
