I started riding in 1999, I joined Carrollton Cycling shortly thereafter and rode every chance I got (solo, organized group and pay rides) upgraded bikes a few times, (Raleigh, GT, then a Trek) kids came along, life got in the way and the riding all but stopped, sold the Trek 5500, bought a Cervelo R2.5 a few months later, it was recalled and I got the R3 (sweet ride) and ride it and my other bikes 3-4 times a week or more. I found bikejournal.com through a friend of mine (urbinrider) and I can't wait to get home and log my ride.


Logged Mileage
2007: 3906 (only logged rides before June that I had info on from ride numbers on my wall, so I probably missed 500-600 miles)
2008: 4004
2009: 329
4/7/2009: UPDATE: Bought a Harley Davidson Streetglide for my 40th birthday present to myself and can't stay off of it.....Selling ALL my bikes, still a Biker, just a different breed, Thanks bikejournal, it's been fun.
