Spaniard moving to DC

Hi everyone,

Just introducing myself. I am Gabriel, spanish by nationality although really feel like a third culture kid (traveled all over to call one place home).

Im moving to DC for job reasons, and in doing so I have been drawn to the world of cycling. As a kid I was a big fan and aficionado (started my bike repair--cough cough chain and misaligned handlebars only--cough cough) business in my neighborhood at 7, riding bianchi dirt bikes through urban rubble. Then travels (family travels a lot), growing up, other hobbies pulled me away for many years.

Recently (26) I started noticing that when I see a nice bike, or a group of people riding, I get this feeling in my gut that I've lost something long ago and yearn for it.

With my move to DC I decided to get back in touch with riding.

My goal is to build my own road bike within the next 6-12 months, and learn everything there is to learn about bicycles and riding.

nice to meet you all!
