    I am from Dayton, Ohio. My real name is Brenda. I work for a large urban school district and am an administrative assistant to the CEO of all business operations. I ride several thousand miles a year and had a custom built frame made last year (Orbea). I belong to the local cycling club that is the second largest in Ohio. I am the club secretary. :)

    Our kids are Northern California BMX (bicycle motocross) racers. We have
    started a grass roots campaign working with local government here in Elk Grove, CA
    to try and get a BMX track built. It's a long term project and we really need
    your help.

    http://www.ElkGroveBMX.com has been created as a tool to get the word out. When
    you have a moment please check out the website and register so we can keep you
    up to date with our efforts. Also, please let everyone you know who might be
    interested about the website so they to can register and get involved. More
    then anything we need residents of the Elk Grove area to show their support.
    Registration on the site is key as the e-mail addresses collected will be used
    to notify folks of meetings with the Elk Grove parks staff where they can voice
    their opinions about what they want to see built in their area parks. Of course
    we want a BMX track!

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Keith & Karen CoBen

    Hi! My name is Julie, 27 years old and I'm from Massachusetts. I am going to do the MS Bike Ride in June for the first time and I am really excited about doing it. I am starting to practice for it. Can anyone offer me some tips? I have a bike but I would like to purchase a better one for this 100 mile ride. :) Is anyone on here from Massachusetts?

    Go Ottawa!! It's getting nice out....

    I'm an avid Ottawan biker, formerly of Nova Scotia. Ottawa = better road biking. Nova Scotia = way better mountain biking IMHO

    I'm a looser student trying to get into lawschool here in Sacramento, Ca (it's the capitol of California). I ride a giant tcr, and have yet to put more than 45 miles on my bike in a day (i've got six hundered miles in about as many months - not including whatever mileage i'd put on with the trainer).

    In re: the kid trying to get a bmx track put up in elk grove - have you tried pushing the ironpoint track in folsom? I know the roseville track is pretty popular. I don't know that the competition is a smart buisness move at the moment (unless you've got massive land out near wilton, and then you have a private enterprise so go for it but for a county sanctioned track you've really got to play politics).

    Hello world, I'm Blake, a sports journalist, and I live in Leeds and I'm looking for a cycling partner to ride from Land's End to John O'Groats. I'm pretty much a Leyman when it comes to bikes so don't particularly want to embark on a 1,000-mile trek solo. I love a challenge and have wanted to do this for years but have been put off by work commitments. I am looking for a big endurance challenge to kick-off what I hope will be the start of some bigger endurance adventures in the future (Everest is the dream but that's a few years off yet!). If anyone is interested in planning for a LEJOG trek some time in 2006 or knows of anyone they can put me in touch with who is, I'd be delighted to hear from you.

    Hi, I'm James and I currently reside in Saint Louis. I put my bike info in my signature along with my favorite LBS and the place I hang out on the weekends, BicycleWorks. It's this non profit shop that helps the little neighborhood kids fix their bikes and if they participate in all the classes can earn a bike. Anyway it's pretty cool, we're actually providing mechanical support for Earth Day 2006 in STL.

    Maybe if I feel inspired I'll write more until then I have some questions.

    Hello all,


    I am new to the site and the sport. At this point I would not say i am in it for the sport but am just getting into it. I just started commuting to work 8.11 miles on my bike. I will say I have looked at some sites and know that I will easily get hooked on it. But I will say man these things can cost an arm and a leg but if they do than we wouldn't be able to ride would we? Or at the very least it would be a very odd circle.

    I look forward to talking with you all and learning more about cycling.

    Cheers,
    Chris
    Centreville VA.

    Hi People,

    I just found the site. I'm no hardcore cyclist but more of a general fitness enthusiast. I'm living in Taiwan for now and looking forward to spending some time hanging around these boards.

    Hello everyone,
    I have burning question? I have a pair of louis garneau tri/road shoes. paid just under $100. Do the upper end shoes really make that much difference? I`m talking $200+ range. Are they that much stiffer? Are they a really better platform? Thanks for your help.:confused:
