IF YOU HATE BICYCLISTS, MOVE ON PLEASE. THANK YOU.

Hey Blazermaniacs,

I'm wondering how many of you are daily commuters, racers, collectors, builders, mechanics, summer-only, or "Wow, I forgot I had that ol' thing" cyclists.

I've been commuting by bicycle for over a year now and love it! I recently moved to SW Portland, live two blocks from work, and maybe ten blocks from school. Yes, it's convenient, but I'm looking for a challenge now that my commute is so short. I like to ride because it's a cheap mode of transportation, it reminds me of the freedom I had as a child, and it's really the only form of exercise I have at the moment, being that I have two children at home. None of my friends want to ride bicycles like I do, or have the time. So here I am, on Blazersedge, trying to find other like-minded individuals who have similar interests... basketball, bicycles (music, luthiery, machining, drafting and design, photography, metal or wood working).

I want to find fans who want to ride to games, ride for fun, or want to have another thing to talk about besides the Blazers. If anyone's interested in long distance rides, that's a plus! I just heard about the Portland Century ride and would love to participate next year. If you know of any other events, casual races, or hotspots for avid riders, let me know!

My main ride is an SE Lager single speed. I love it. It's heavy, simplistic, functional, and a workout to ride long distances. I also have a 70's Raleigh Grand Prix. It's currently in a state of repair. The derailleur needs to be taken apart, regreased/oiled/cleaned, and realigned (hello hobby mechanics). I have big plans for this bicycle. But as with any big project, it costs money, which is something I don't have a whole lot of!

Anyways, thanks for reading, replying, and moving on if you're just a hater! GO BLAZERS!!!
