Hi all. I am new in this forum. And fairly new at being car-less. I've been riding my bike exclusively since 2/28/06. That did encompass the end of winter, and all of the hot 4 Corners summer. The city I am in is fairly bike friendly and my commute is not that far (although I do go home every lunch to give my doggie a chance for relief, lol). I'm currently riding a Mongoose Crossway 850 circa mid 90's, much upgraded. As I'm very much enjoying this forum thought I would introduce myself to you all.
