Hello from Kansas!

Hello! I'm definitely a newbie, but cycling has become a big part of my life in the past year. About 10 months ago, my wife (a runner), suggested that I get out my old Huffy bike and take it for a spin. I hadn't ridden much in the past ten years, but I was quickly hooked. I have lost nearly 20 pounds and feel great! I'm not very fast, but I have been riding 10-12 miles a day -- and I hope to increase my distances this summer. (I'm a teacher, so I'll have more time to ride!)

A few weeks ago I upgraded my ride to an Origin8 Intersekt7:

Then added a few accessories:

I look forward to learning much from these forums!

Cheers and welcome to BF!

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
