Love bikes, love riding them. Love to participate in organized rides but can still appreciate the solitude of the solo ride. I think about riding while I'm at work. I don't think about work while I'm riding.
Finally getting my butt back in the saddle!

This used to be a pink bike. In the end, I cratered and decided that pink wasn't for me. I love green, so it seemed like the logical choice. It's not a professional paint job, but I like it well enough. The bike itself is a good, solid ride. It's great for climbing despite its weightiness.

This is the bike I spend the majority of my riding time on. It's my bike for commuting and running errands around town. She's basically all stock except I've changed the knobbies for street slicks. It's a good, solid bike that I've enjoyed immensely.

I picked this one up on Ebay. I wanted a bike I could throw in the car without having to lash it to the back of the car. It rides a little funny, but it's actually pretty quick and nimble.
