Gale-force winds proved no match! Four times!
Call me crazy, but man, those hurricanes were great riding weather!
My name is Will Combs and I'm a 19-year-old without a driver's license. I suppose that's how I got so into cycling. It also helps when my girlfriend's uncle runs two bike shops and gives me free helmets and gloves and stuff for helping him out. I'm a college student here on the east coast of central Florida, and the spring is a highly welcomed raise in climate for my knuckles.
I ride my GT Timberline around the city to get around and have put about 1,500 miles on it over the course of approximately a year and a half, which I suppose is pretty good mileage for one who wastes more time on video games than is probably healthy. Before that I had my Magna which felt like it was made of lead and the GT is about 32 pounds with everything on it. I've tried to make it into as much of a road bike as I can but I'm still running heavy, and subsequently am in the market for a road bike just above entry-level. Big time, but I have to save up with my first job. I want it so bad I can taste it!
So yeah, I've probably set the tone for my tendency to ramble. I'm a cyclist, baby!! Sunburned and proud of it, watch line and everything! lol.
By the way, my avatar is the Pokemon known as Gengar for those who don't know. He was my favorite when I was into that stuff.
