Live in Round Rock, Tx and have been riding on the road for 20 years. Half of that time was with a group and the remaining was riding by myself on major bike routes.
After learning to ride I fully enjoy the sites and distances I have completed. I am not a competitor but do ride well.
My bike is a Trek 5000 which I really like. I have had a few falls on the Trek and it is in good shape with no damage. I had to stop riding due to injuries which gained me a new helmet for each injury. I am ready for the pavement.
