My name is Black Bud, and I finally entered the 21st century--I bought my own computer!!
As a result, I now can let you all know that: 1) I exist, and, 2) I have a lot to say!!
(Since I had to use library computers to "surf" the Web, I did not feel it was my place to
join boards such as this.)
I started to bike commute about five years ago when I moved too far from my job
to walk, and I just got sick of using the overpriced-and-not-available-often-enough-even-
when-it's-on-schedule city bus!! (I do not own a car, don't even have a license to drive.
In addition, I'm not rich and would rather live in a better location than live in a "dump"
just to support a car!!
I guess that my neighbors, family, and co-workers think I'm a bit insane! Especially when
I show up all covered with snow and ick in winter!! (I ride year-round.)
I hope we will be friends!!
