I live in Phoenix near the 101, I17 interchange! I should be getting my first bike in over 10 years on Monday. I'm a grad student at ASU and plan on reducing my gas expenses by biking to the ASU west campus and taking their shuttle. I'm a clyde and hope to get fit while saving money too!
I live in east Mesa and once I am good enough to not get dropped I would be up for rides. I got the bike less than 2 weeks ago and just did my first over 20 mile ride though so who knows how long it may be...
Cheers from Europe, my second bike is in n.w. Tucson and every two years I come to the cycle paradise.
Can I ask you call Tucson cycle paradise? I'm currently in CA but looking at both Kingman and Tucson to relocate to when I retire. I'm currently spoiled by living in Davis, where I pretty much leave my truck in the driveway. My SO is leaning to Kingman, because he wants more land and privacy and not sure 'city living' is for him. I'm leaning to Tucson. We're both roadies, not too hard core, but like to do metrics together. Of course, we'll visit both places, but I like the sound of 'cycle paradise!'
