Steel Bike Adventures


More Steel Bike Adventures.

Fast forward to 2006. I relocated from the Midwest to the East Bay area of California. While not quite Europe and its notable respect for cyclists, N. California is a paradise for US cyclists: the consistent weather, the varied terrain, the infectious bike culture – all reinforce a compelling dictum to get on your bike and ride! Those reasons plus a girlfriend who told me our relationship was doomed unless I embraced cycling both as a means of regular transportation and recreation. And although I barely made it up a tiny hill in Sonoma on our first ride, I was hooked, and it wasn’t long before I was doing century rides and taking cycling vacations in Europe.
