Hey there from WA!

I've loved riding bikes since I was a kid, it's always been up there as one of my top ways to relax and enjoy nature while also buffing up my legs! I can't wait to get to meet you all!
I'm in my mid 20's now and I have a lot to look forward to, as years of bad mental health have prevented me from biking until recently. I can't wait to get back into the groove. And I actually moved up to Washington recently from south Florida, so that's been an adjustment of its own.

A few things about me is I've always loved the great outdoors and would get psyched whenever my parents took my brother and I on a camping trip. I love animals but I have a soft spot for reptiles and amphibians. I love ghost stories and SOMETIMES scary movies.. I'm just really picky about movies and shows in general

Anyways yeah, that's a little about me.

Welcome to BF.

I'm a transplant to the PNW as well, having grown up and spent much of my adult life in the midwest. The climate and active outdoor culture here suit me well. I hope you enjoy both.

To be a year-round cyclist here, you just have to sort out gear and such for 40F and rain. Liquid sunshine, they call it.

I get up to WA (from Portland) several times a year to ride with the Seattle Randonneurs. Great club.
