Heloooo from snowy Colorado Springs!

OK, so two blizzards in 9 days is not fun! I tweaked my back shoveling the 5' drift in my driveway... now I'm waiting the the drugs to work.

I'm Jon - I started riding again after a 4 year layoff. Palmer Park is 10 minute ride (it used to be 20 ). I just got my Gary Fisher Tassajara, but I've only been able to ride it twice... stupid snow. I've been hitting the gym pretty regularly, hoping to do the kokopelli trail in May. We'll see. I'm definitely doing E-rock in June!

That's all for now - I'm glad I found this place!

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I would guess it's a pun on the name 'Fisher'...but it does seem odd for a mountain bike.
