Hello from Arizona

Hello,

I'm Alex, from Arizona. Currently I'm a college student who just happens like bikes, looking to learn more about them, figured this was a good step in that direction.

I'm currently riding a Bianchi Trofeo, I'm not sure what year it is.

Let's see, I've been riding for quite sometime but it wasn't until recently (like 4 years ago) I got my first real true road bike and saw how I had been missing out. I had been riding on mostly Walmart bikes .

Good to be here.
Thank you.

That's awesome looks like a good time! In the picture of you fixing your 5am flats, you both look like you're actually having fun fixing em.
You weren't kidding about touring AZ, did you actually tour from city to city ?

Welcome aboard Alex, that Bianchi is a great ride, post some pics of it when you have a chance. Don't let the academic grind wear you down, take some rides when it gets too much to deal with. Study headaches suck big time.

Thank you all for the warm welcome.
@1989Pre, We definitely have some nice hills here in Tucson! My top pick would be the west hills, known as gates pass. Beautiful paths to bike.
@Bill, Yes and I'll definitely be taking breaks from studying. Biking has been helping with the study headaches.
@10 Wheels, HOLY... That's an insane tour!!! I thought tours were at most within two or three cities LOL. That must have taken some serious logistics to get through!!!!!I'm seriously in awe right now.
