Hello from Iowa

Hi, I've been riding quality bikes for 13 years. I am from the Omaha area. I try to ride RAGBRAI every year. I currently ride an older Giant XTC, an early 80's Centurion, and just picked up a lower end road tandem to try with my girlfriend. I'm really looking forward to reading, learning, and sharing my experiences here!

Welcome to BF, sounds like you would enjoy the Classic and Vintage and the Tandem forums for your riding interest. Lots of RAGBRAI veterans here, maybe some you have met on the ride.

BTW, we love pictures of the bikes.
