    Are you a jew? It is not a common thing to visit israel 3 times.
    Jerusalem and its outskirt are great for riders. both road and mountain. Weather here is always good, and the view is nice.

    90 kph downhill with good road bike is fast but regular.

    where are you from, where do you ride?

    hello naama, not to go too far OT but i was wondering where are all the "nice jewish girls". My late father was raised in Jerusalem from about the age of 3 till he was about 14, the family stopped there on the way from Russia to New York where my grandfather was a cantor at one of the major temples in NYC. I've never been to the middle east, glad to know there is some good riding there.

    What's in your stable? 2005 Specialized Dolce Comp; Ralaigh Tara; hubby and the kids bikes

    Fastest speed on a road bike? where? when? couldn't say how fast because we went to Vegas and road Red Rock Canyon. We decided to rent the bikes instead of shipping them for just one ride. Needless to say I did not have a computer, but I know going down some of those hills was pretty fast, sorry, but I wimped out and even used my breaks. This trip was just last month, January.

    Another picture of yourself or your ride? Haven't gotten that far either.

    What is the biggest lie you've ever told: The truth is written all over my face, so I don't bother.

    Most memorable moment on my bike: I guess the ride at Red Rock Canyon.

    Most fun ever had on a bike? I would have to say everytime we go out. More on road than off. We just ride off road as a change of pace, but really love road riding.

    Where do you live? Recently moved to Austin, TX

    Explanation of your handle: I love, love, love my scorcher (fixed gear bike)

    Explanation of your avatar: Gotta git me one of them!

    Age (general or specific) 34

    Occupation: Administrative Assistant

    Favorite bike: depends on when you ask

    What's in your stable? Scorcher: a frame rescued from a scrap pile, powder coated a shade I call Deep Purple, built up with some random used parts,a fixed gear rear hub, sweep cruiser bars mounted upside down, platform clipless pedals and a v-brake on the front. Road: custom Willits titanium. Mtn.: custom Willits steel in HOT PINK (I call the shade candy raspberry).

    Fastest speed on a road bike? where? when? I just got a computer and have seen 40 mph on some forgotten section of a long ride around here. I know I've gone faster than that on the back of the tandem and solo in the mountains, just don't have the digital proof.

    Another picture of yourself or your ride? I don't have a digital camera. Need to remedy that.

    Most memorable moment on my bike: Anytime I do something I didn't think I could.

    Most fun ever had on a bike? I was in my second season of riding single track when I accepted an invitation to go on a 9-day mtb tour from SW Colorado to Moab. The whole tour was great...well, maybe except the first day which started with a long, cobbly climb during which I sat down and wept and which I finished last. Mid-way through the tour we had a half day's riding that was suitable for scorchers, wide and swoopy and we wingnuts had to pass the others on uphills just to make it to the top and my friend Geo giving me a little boost now and then at the crest of a hill, and I ran my front wheel right into a mud hole and supermanned over the bars and came up laughing and MAN was it great!!!

    Most memorable moment on my bike: Finishing a century side by side with my BF thinking I've never had so much fun! (and oh yeah how far to the hot tub?!)

    Another picture of yourself or your ride? Another?? How about one? http://www.teamamericasdairyland.com...ries/cindy.htm

    What is the biggest lie you've ever told: Define 'big' ....

    Most memorable moment on my bike: If I have to choose just one I think it would be the very first charity ride Al & I participated in. We were contemplating the purchase of road bikes (I was the one on the fence thinking that I didn't really 'need' a road bike). As we were nearing the last five miles of a 32-mile route Al & I were humming along on our comfort bikes enjoying the gorgeous late summer weather. As we whizzed by a group of women on road and hybrid bikes, I overheard one of them say, "We've just been passed by two comfort bikes." It was at that moment I decided Al was right ... I COULD be a roadie!

    Most fun ever had on a bike? Just about any time I am on my bike and the endorphins have kicked in is my favorite and/or fun moment. Two moments come to mind; the first at a biking event when Al & I maintained 27 mph for over 10 miles. The second came on another charity ride in northern Wisconsin in late September; the temperature at the start was 32 degrees but it was a beautiful route with Bald Eagles sitting in the towering pines next to the lakes, the aspen trees in brilliant gold foliage, geese gathering for migration, all viewed while we were clipping along at 17 mph.

    What is the biggest lie you've ever told: I hate liars, so generally, I tell the truth.

    Most memorable moment on my bike: When I climbed Mt. Calvo in Tuscany, all because my husband and I misread a road sign to get back to Siena. The guy from the bike shop where we rented the bikes didn't believe that we had done the ride...it's part of the Giro. I have a nice video of me telling my husband I hate him at the summit.

    Most fun ever had on a bike? I would have to say that the most fun I have on my bike is when i commute to school. I love to see the looks of envy from the teachers who are 25 years younger than me. It's a really short commute, but mostly uphill. Plus, I get to tell the 12 year old boys to keep their hands off of my bike, when it's in my classroom!
