Hello!

Hello! Just a quick intro, having just joined after lurking for a bit.

Picked up cycling again three years ago when I got a new Trek Verve 2 for father's day... loving it! Been a big part of my weight loss journey, still at the top end of the clyde scale but on my way down for sure.

Started commuting last summer and intend on being a three season commuter starting this spring.

On the cusp of a new purchase... going to pick up a Trek Crossrip LTD to get me to work (13km or so one way) and get into a bit of light touring. Have a friend who lives 76km away and the goal this summer is to do a ride out there and back the next day. That'll be my first real distance ride.

Looking forward to learning more from this great community.

Nice ride! Don't know if I'll ever get a chance to do something quite that epic... but maybe!
