Checking in from Rochester, NY

Hi folks,

My name is Jason Crane. I ride an Xtracycle (based on a Giant Sedona DX), a Motobecane Nomade I from 1982 (when they were still made in France) and a Motobecane Mirage from the late 70s.

I run a site called RocBike.com. It's a cycling culture site feature daily link collections, news about cycling (particularly commuting), essays from a range of different riders, and a podcast called The RocBike Review.

I've been riding a bike on and off since I was a little kid. I rode quite a bit when I lived in Japan for several years, and I just started riding again this summer (2007). Since June, I've put more than 1,100 miles on my bike and become a daily cycle commuter -- nearly car free.

In the rest of my life, I'm a union organizer for UNITE HERE and I host a jazz interview show call The Jazz Session.

Nice to meet you!

Jason

Hello Jason, my kind of guy (you need to visit the C & V forum...) . I love your site, and I will be returning to look at it more thoroughly.

Welcome to BF!

I do believe I work with a friend of your's at MCC.

And I do believe I'll be meeting you when(if) you come in for the Sustainability Day at MCC where I/we'll be having a table there of bike info geared toward commuting.

Welcome aboard.

Thanks for the kind words, everybody. And yes, getting that plate request through the South Carolina DMV was a proud moment!
