    Welcome, dottigirl! Please don't feel that you're an interloper. The majority of us may be from the US, but we are an international group.

    Another picture of yourself or your ride? Certainly. See my photobucket page HERE
    What is the biggest lie you've ever told: ?

    Most memorable moment on my bike: Climbing a never ending mountain wearing unproper equipment for cold weather, under a stormy conditions, with a broken cellular and not feeling hands and feet.

    Hi girls
    I've changed my bike frame Ruby Specialized for a Ventus, Van Nicholas. I'm very happy! My "Nikita" has a Titanic fidelity and we did toghether 3 brevet Randonneurs this year 200kms, 300kms and 400kms (that was last 25th May and sure a hard day)

    Some one can tell me how can I put some photos of mine in this forum.
    You're invited to visit our site Randonneurs Portugal on facebook.

    Big hugs
    Ride safe and have fun

    Greetings all! I just started back riding bikes 2 weeks ago and have already upgraded. I am 56 retired RN who needed something to do to keep the weight from coming on by not working. I have lots of metal in my right ankle and my Ortho doc told me biking was a good rehab. I started on a box store Schwinn cruiser. After riding it 10 miles on one ride and feeling like I had been beat up I went to my LBS today. I came home with a Fuji Crosstown 2.1. I am in love with it. It is different from the cruiser but I feel like I am getting more of a work out from it. The seat is comfy. I just have to figure out how to change these gears. I have never has a bike with so many gears and on both sides of the handle bar. Any tips would be appreciated. I ride for stress release and have several bike trails I frequent.

    Real name: Traci
    Where do you live? Orlando (area), FL

    Explanation of your handle: I take tons of photos-of everyone and everything else, just not myself. I was named Paparazzi after my group of girls and I went camping (most of which have never even stepped on a sidewalk much less a wooded area out in the middle of absolutely no-where) and we were sitting around the campfire telling stories when all of a sudden we hear "CRACK, crack crackle" and one of the girls, in very slow motion, starts falling sideways. Her chair broke. Well while everyone was jumping up to help out- I jumped up, grab the camera and started snapping photos! It's priceless, they dubbed me "Paparazzi" and we talk about it all the time, and the photos never go away. I love my girly get togethers.

    Explanation of your avatar: I love the coast/beaches. I'm a beach bum by birth.

    Age (general or specific) 42

    Occupation: Home Administrator

    Favorite bike: IDK. I'm pretty happy on my new Trek Cali but I'm pretty happy on the beach cruiser too! Different reasons, different rides.

    What's in your stable? '13 Trek Cali S (newest), my husband's Trek (new), a Next 10spd (?) and 2 box store beach cruisers.

    Fastest speed on a road bike? where? when? HAHA...I'll work on this and update later-you don't want to know right now.

    Another picture of yourself or your ride? I take the pictures rarely ever in them...but maybe I'll work on that too.


    What is the biggest lie you've ever told: "No mom, I didn't DO THAT!"

    Most memorable moment on my bike: Working on this too...

    Most fun ever had on a bike? Maybe I should stop working on this "getting to know you" and do it much later; like when I have real stories to tell...? LOL

    Oh my gosh, the photo is beautiful! And, I used to live in Monterey, visited Carmel, Joshua Tree NP, Big Sur so often. Surfed the area too. Of all the many, many places I've lived, Monterey area is the one I'd return too. (Well I say that now but haven't been there '93, maybe I'd feel differently?? I loved it so much!)
