Hi from Alaska, and wear your helmet

Hello, from Alaska. And before I go on, two days ago I crashed on my road bicycle because I was not paying attention to a bump near my house that I'm ridden over hundreds of times. I bounced my head on the pavement. I got up and didn't know where I was and why I was there. Mild concussion. But I wore my helmet, which I cracked. And I'll ride again. So just a reminder to wear that helmet.
I love my road bike but I also have a MB and a touriing frame I hope to rebuild and am in the midst of putting together a cyclocross bike. Alaska may be miserable for winter bicycling, but it's great in the summer. It didn't really get too dark last night to ride until about 11 p.m. Great scenery. On my regular rides I see moose, volcanos and glaciers. I hope not to see bear. Best to all.

Welcome to the forums! Glad you had that lid on.

What part of Alaska are you in?
