    Hello from Sandy, Utah

    Hello everyone!.

    I am 51 and started cycling about 6 years ago. Last year (2004) was my highest mileage ever, 5,800 miles. Included a road race (188 mile - LOTOJA) and a number of centuries and the Snowbird hillclimb (A road race with 3,500 vertical feet in 11 miles). I am able to ride at lunch time, so I generally get in about 20 miles per work day, if the weather is safe (no ice or snow on the road) and an additional ride on Saturday mornings.

    I got a new tandem for our family for Christmas and found this site looking for some information. Lots of great information. So far I have taken both children and my wife for a ride. Hopefully there will be many more.

    I ride a Cannondale R2000, A full suspension Kona Kahuna, Speacialized Allez Comp and our new Raleigh Pursuit tandem.

    I hope we all have NO LOST RIDING TIME ACCIDENTS FOR THE ENTIRE YEAR!!

    RB

    Welcome to the forums xray! We also do the tandem thing, as well as singles. This year the wifey wants to ride RAGBRAI again, so we'll be on the tandem for that in July.

    You live in Utah? I just finished reading a book about fundalmentalist Mormons, called "Under the Banner of Heaven". Have you read it? I visited SLC about ten years ago, drove a U-Haul truck up there for a friends. I remember that its really beutiful country up there, esp. comming up from the south on the interstate, through Provo area. My friend gave me a quick tour of downtown SLC. Really a pretty town.

    Hi RB - what an awesome place to live! I've visited your area to downhill ski on MANY occasions, but I've only seen it in the winter. I'd really like to get out in the summer for some mtb and road riding - it has to be fantastic! There's nothing like that drive up little cottonwood canyon!

    Bac,

    The drive up Litle Cottonwood canyon is great, but a bike ride up the canyon is really a fun grind all the way up. 13 miles to Alta from my house and 4,000 vertical feet. What a ride!!!. And then there's the ride down

    To Hhowdy, welcome my friend.

    RB

    Do you know what the record Hillclimb is?
