Looking forward to participating here
It's nice to look back at my life (I'm 59) and all the changes and see that bicycles have remained the one constant. It has been a romance with them, and I'm sure many of you understand that. Bikes are magical. I could reminisce quite a bit, but I'll spare you that. In the here and now, I commute 23 miles RT to work nearly every day, weather be damned, and continue to be a fairly dedicated road rider, although now pretty much of the one-century-per-season type. Many years ago, I rode about half of the Bikecentennial Trail from Colorado to Virginia. If I ever get the time, and assuming my health holds up, I'll do the western portion of that route.
I've been posting on a forum devoted to books and discussion for several years. An author by the name of Paul Pinsky plugged his new book, "Biking through the 'Hoods," and I picked it up. It's about cycling in many of the major cities in the U.S. I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but thought I'd mention it in case anyone else would be interested.
Pleased to be able to join you here.
