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.

Touring is a great adventure.

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