Hi everyone! I'm originally from South Eastern Michigan with a 4 year stop off in Phoenix. Upon deciding to move to Portland, I knew I wanted to bike to work despite not having been on a bike in over 15 years. So before leaving Phoenix, I bought the exact wrong bike (huge slow Globe carmel) and made the best of it. In February I bought a much more useful bike (Raleigh cadent) with just enough sportiness to hook me on riding for pleasure in addition to my daily commute. Now I'm saving for a proper roadie and looking for a group ride that isn't too slow to bother with bibs and jerseys but isn't too fast to leave me and my flat bars and rack mounts at the bottom of the last hill.
