Who Am I? (BPCycler)
I live and ride mostly in Allegany County, Western Maryland. I am 40-something. I have a wife. I have two kids. I have a cat.
Century rides don’t appeal to me, but I love rides in the country of 10-20 miles. In a typical week I’ll ride 20-50 miles. Some ride/train to get faster and go farther. Me, I couldn’t care less. It’s more about enjoying the ride and company of friends than shattering records. Though I do like to compete against myself, I’m far from hardcore.
If it rains, or snows, or hails, or showers burning embers, I don’t worry about it. I find something else to do. Hit the gym or go to the mall and shoot for that Golden 10,000 steps.
My riding attire consists of sweatpants/shorts, jogging pants/shorts or something else loose and comfortable. I’m not out trying to make a fashion statement and don’t concern myself with shaving 10ths of a second off my time with wind wicking apparel. I’m not aerodynamic and I think that’s okay.
