I live in Whitehorse, in the Yukon. (Its right next to Alaska). I've been riding for about 4 years now, primarily mountain biking. We have some fantastic trails around here, right out my back door, so it was an easy sport for me to pick up when I moved here. I try to get out at least twice a week for some trail rides, but it doesn't always happen. This year I decided to start commuting to work, so I converted my old Jamis hardtail to a commuter and I've been loving it. I'm looking at getting myself a road bike for commuting and possibly for some weekend rides - I'll have to find that correct area to ask some questions regarding that later.
The summer is short around here, but it is usually fantastic! My riding window is quickly closing, but I'm hoping to squeeze in some more trail rides before the snow flies. Once September hits, every ride could be my last!
