I receive my first bike in over 20 years as part of Biketown Racine 2004. I rode it regularly since the beginning of August 2004. In my first year, I recorded 648.01 miles. In 2005 I attempted by first century, but bailed 75 miles into it (insufficient training). I made my 2005 mileage goal of 2005 outdoor miles.

I longed for more miles, and for a better bike to do it on. In April of 2008 I put the finishing touches on my new ride, a Waterford Adventure cycle. I look forward to a long and storied relationship with my new love (just don't let my wife know)

Hardtail XC Mountain bike
Description:  I received this bike from a friend who can no longer ride. It is a little small for me, but made a passable spare, and is OK on the trainer.

I recently gave this bike to a kid in my youth group. He was looking for a commuter bike, and he is a smaller kid, so it should work out fine for him.
