click to enlarge
Started cycling regularly in 2004 at the age of 40. I think of myself as of a recreational cyclist. I basically ride around Lithuania, love seeing places. Prefer solo rides. Emphasis set on the time spent outside vs distance ridden.

I never owned a car although I still keep my drivers license which has already expired. I now bike-commute to work year round.

My bicycle is accomodated to carry a short wave radiostation so that I can enjoy my other hobby while riding - HAM radio.

Quit smoking after 25 years in 2005.
