Greetings from Colorado

Hi,
Fell in love with cycling when I was a kid for the adventure of it, and never grew out of it! I've done a bit of everything over the years raced cat 1 mtb, cat 2 road, toured, bike commuted and just like to have fun on the bike. I think my favorite is touring, though with work and family I don't get the chance too much anymore. I was hoping for a 2-3 week tour this year, but things happened to prevent it. I'm in Colorado now and starting to gear up to finally open a bike shop, about 15 years after the idea first popped into my head.

Welcome, from Colorado Springs!! A new shop that's cool, hope you enjoy it here, it's a nice place but a bit on the expensive side. ENJOY and good luck on the shop opening!

Very cool, Colorado is a very bike friendly state.
Me too, i'm toying the idea of opening up a ebike rental place in Morro Bay, CA. Hopefully, it will happen soon. The pandemic is really giving the bicycle activity a big boost

Thanks all, probably 2ish years till shop time as I'm on a contract till then, but that means lots of time to save my money and edit my business plan.
