New guy from Colorado

Hey everyone. Just a quick intro as I have just signed up. I am a commuter cyclist, riding a relatively humble Windsor Oxford 3-speed I picked up online a year ago on the cheap. Before that it was an adolescent-sized Trek MT 800. I got back into cycling when I moved to Colorado, where everything seems so much more bike-friendly than back at my old digs. Now I can barely get behind the steering wheel of my car without a bit of a frown...

I've joined mostly to seek maintenance help (I try to DIY when I can) but also to look into information about training and events.

I also ride with the Denver Cruiser Ride occasionally, on top of commuting and doing road trails. The Cruisers are an interesting bunch. I mostly go for the people watching. It is interesting (and sometimes understandable) to see the ire they generate among other cyclists.

Welcome. I grew up in and around Denver. Lots of great riding to be had on all sorts of tires

Enjoy BF!
