    Hello pobserver. I am from Columbia too. Why do you call it the gates of hell? Is it the heat? I am also a roadie, but I do not have a dog, nor a wife. I do not want a dog, but a wife might be nice. I ride an 11-year-old Trek 1200. It does the job. Earlier this evening my roommate proposed a name for it: "the grey ghost," or "old glory." I am not sure which I will adopt. I ride about 100k per week, and wish I could/would ride more, but time and motivation are my excuses. Do you ever do the Friday night "beer ride" from Cycle Center, or any other group rides?

    Yeah, it's definitely the heat. We kinda sit in a valley. 30yrs old, 11yrs old, or just bought yesterday it does not matter as long as you ride it. I ride a Cannondale CAAD3. Its my other, other babby. I have not ridden any beer rides this year. Due to medical problems I did not ride for a year, so I am just now starting to reach some kind of form. I am almost at a 100k. If you would like to try to get together for a ride send me a pivate email. As much as I love riding alone, it might be nice to go with someone else. Do you shave?

    Hi there,

    I'm a 28 year old woman from England living in the States this past three years (came from a job). I injured my foot running a couple of years ago - and I've been riding ever since... firstly on a hybrid and then I bought a road bike last year. I love it - and try to ride 5-6 days a week (1-3 hours) - even in the cold Maine winters! Terrible when it comes to technical stuff - so I'm looking forward to learning lots from this board!

    Hi

    43 yr old Quality Manager from Manchester, England. Ridden bikes on and off at club level for about 25 yrs with occasional interruptions from Children and work.

    Just ordered a replacement road bike for my stolen wolf in sheeps clothing.:mad:

    So I've been on a mountain bike for a while which is so slowwwww.

    As I am over 40 and classed as a veteran I'm going to have a go at doing some time trials to see if I can beat some standard times. So I'm training on bike and in Gym at least 300k a week on the road.

    If anyone is in the area and wants to do a bit of road work send me an e-mail.

    I'm from Sydney and I enjoy riding my bike for relaxation and fitness, nothing serious though. My true passion is sailing... but thats for another forum. ;)

    Great community feel in this site - well done!

    I'm from Leduc, Alberta in Canada. I'm employed in the oil industry.

    Just got back into spinning the spokes and loving every minute of it. My old Peugeot UO-8 is still smokin' but will be looking for a new ride sometime real soon.

    I'll be looking for advice on this topic from all of you out there as to what's hot and what's not these days. I have my mind set on a couple of new machines but would like the "insider" view.

    Greetings from Alberta!

    Hi guys, first post...

    ...Surgical Photographer at a children's hospital in Miami, Florida.

    With advances in medical technology, many procedures and medical devices evolve. My job is basically to visually document and record these procedures in progress so that others can learn/apply or modify/enhance.

    The image below depicts a typical neurosurgical procedure, used to detect epileptic convulsions. The grid is placed directly on the brain and the wire leads from the grid are then attached to a seizure monitoring device.

    I live in Roswell, New Mexico, USA. Forty years old with 5 stepchildren and 14 (15 by Thursday) step-grandchildren. I work about 60 hrs/wk as a systems administrator by day and as a waiter in a Mexican restaurant evenings and most Saturdays. I live only 3 miles from work, but have lengthened my morning commute to a one-hour ride on a Schwinn mountain bike. I ride home for a quick lunch, back to work, and then straight home after my second job.

    Next spring I'm hoping to drop down to one job, buy a road bike, and start training to do a century ride.
