My story

Thought I'd share this with all of you considering this site, particularly Peakster and SVOBoy were sort of the catalyst which made me decide to continue commuting everywhere by bike (after returning to Southern CA from the Bay Area, which was perceived to be impossible due the heavy emphasis on freeways), even to school which was a 46 mile round trip every other day for the past few months.

Hope this serves to inspire other ecomodders to ditch their cars.

The wife and I were planning on bike riding this summer, but it never happened. We were not going to do it for the fuel savings, but for entertainment/exercise. Maybe next year.

cute contest. not to insult. but it is "cute".

the bike riding think is great. I gave mine away to a mentally challenged person. He came across as his early twenties with an old face.I listened to his squeaky bike all the time going by.... Upon realizing, my own ailment is not to excersize my legs too much.. my car is my wheel chair. See Me Gimp.

My live strong story needs guns, lawyers, and money, a seven nation army, and bloodshed. Not so inspiring....in fact, by the time it was inspiring, it appears my inspiration was a holocaust of destruction. Not meant for you tube video...

Wow! You have come a long way. Good luck with tri-scene. If you give up the racing don't give up the riding. Congrats on the new you.
