Howdy from Dallas!

Hello all! I'm new to the forum, but not new to cycling. I've been cycling for nearly all my adult life and often throughout childhood.

I have ridden a lot of rallies in the area, including Hotter'n Hell 100 a few times. I enjoy riding my Specialized Globe around town to grab tacos, coffee, or beer. I always get a smile on my face when I hop on my Specialized Roubaix to do a few laps around White Rock Lake and see the sail boats out. I've ridden in the Netherlands, Seattle, Houston, Colorado, and Minnesota!

I spend a lot of my time right now with the CyclingSavvy education program. This program has been very successful in Florida and I'm excited to be working with two other great instructors to bring it to Dallas.

Great to meet y'all!

Hi Eliot,

Nice vid on Preston Road.

Thanks!

That's actually one of my co-instructors, Waco. He is riding I believe one of his Amsterdam bikes and using the ContourGPS. I'm probably going to film some video with him soon on the Jefferson Bridge south of downtown as well as a few spots in Richardson and Plano.

Are you from the area? I grew up in Spring, TX!

Afraid not, I didn't get home from work until just before dark. And my cubicle is nowhere near the non-opening windows either. Going to try to get out for a short ride this afternoon, however, and planning to try and get 30 or more in on Sunday.
