Ryan from Sacramento, 3rd times a charm!

Have been into BMX since childhood. But at around 16 I began thinking bikes were for kids, ya...I know, my bad. So I grew up got married and got lazy. About 10 yrs ago I started getting back into bikes, but once again life got in the way and laziness and excuses prevailed. Earlier this year I drug the old Gary Fisher out of the garage, again. I went for a 5 mile ride and thought 'WOW' that was hard! But this time I didn't give up. I kept increasing my rides in either distance or duration and began to quickly see great gains, and before I knew it 25-30 mi rides were norm. Then I discovered something I simply never knew people did . BIKE TOURING! As a Jeeper, the whole idea of setting out to explore new destinations comes naturally. I am currently preparing a trip across Oregon next summer and from there who knows. Anyway nice to meet ya'all and look forward to chattin' with you.

Ryan W.

Hello Ryan W,

Welcome to Bike Forums from a Texas road rider.

Touring is a great adventure.

Bring a point and shoot camera with you.

Welcome to BF! You may find that touring is somewhere between magnetic and addictive.
