    I'm Rich, 25, from Wales, grew up in England but have moved around allot. Now working as a Cartographer/geoghraphic data editor in Skåne, the southern part of Sweden.

    Started riding at about 6, racing at 8 - mainly TT's, track and circuit racing in UK, but also some road racing (mainly in Europe) and cyclo X, plus Audax stuff and touring, and have done a wong way end to end amongst others.

    Unfortunately an assortment of too many serious crashes and other injuries put paid to any hope of any serious attempt at a career, whilst continued problems means i now struggle to maintain any great speed for a sustained period of time, or cope with longer distances. Now mainly ride because i enjoy it, and as a mode of transport in everyday life.

    I'm new to this site. I'm in Lawton, Oklahoma. Newlywed Army wife, catfreak, "triathlete" (working on it). I just started a job this past week in HR and Payroll for a nursing home. Basically one other woman and I ARE the Human Resources AND Payroll departments. Should be interesting... I recently "retired" from professional dance (modern and ballet). I guess you could call it retiring. I just said, "Eh, this is getting boring. I'm done." Once you've seen how fun and freeing it is to be outside riding or running, it's hard to enjoy being cooped up in a little mirrored room critiquing everything about yourself!

    C'est moi.

    Omaha, NE, but currently in graduate school in Davis, CA.

    90-110 road miles a week, and the occasional dirt ride. Downieville, baby!

    I was a mountain biker when I moved here, but I've been seduced into road riding by endless miles of empty blacktop.

    I live near Seattle, Washington in the beautiful Northwest United States. Right now I'm recovering from a broken collarbone (triathlon mishap), and my bike mocks me in the garage. But normally I like to sprint 6 miles (10K) to work, where I sell toys. I'm lucky to live right next to a long, smooth, straight bike trail. I try to take 2 hour rides on the weekends where I'm not rock climbing. Remind me not to get injured in the summer!!!!!:(

    p.s. -- I'm brand new to this site and would love to hear from people!
