Greetings!

Starting riding as a young adult in 1970, I have ridden over 2000 miles a year for the last 45 years. I was on the editorial health board of Bicycling magazine from 1987 till the boards elimination in 2001. I have written on many topics, especially the skin and cycling, in both The Rivendell Reader and Ultracycling. My most ridden bikes include a Rivendell custom, a Alex Singer, a Tommasini Fire, a JPWeigle and a Colnago C40.

welcome! sounds like you are seasoned and in the know.
visited DFW for several times, we occasionally saw cyclists and got very excited to see them esp. b/c there was mostly just lots of cars and driving. looking forward to seeing what cycling in Wichita falls looks like!
