    SadieKate ahead by .50 bikes

    Do I hear 9 bikes? Going once, going twice...and the record goes to SK. Unless Robin Williams is lurking here in drag. I read that he has over 50 bikes.

    Naw, I'll hand you a Coors Light to drink. I'll even pay for it, since mine was a freebie from a friend. Probably helped the flavor.

    Real name: Sue

    Where do you live? Phoenix, Arizona

    Explanation of your handle: When I was a fairly new commuter pilot, you didn't hear female voices on the radio too often. One day we heard a female pilot and my captain said "there's another empty kitchen". It became my email address and handle after that!

    Explanation of your avatar: don't even know what an avatar is, but I'll look for one on sale at Target

    Age (general or specific) 40

    Occupation: airline pilot

    Favorite bike: don't know too many, so would have to say MINE!

    What's in your stable? Giant OCR 3 and Motive Smoothie mountain bike

    Fastest speed on a road bike? where? when? 25mph yesterday going down a hill (I'm new to the sport so hope to break this "record" soon!)

    Another picture of yourself or your ride? must get hubby to take pic....

    What is the biggest lie you've ever told: let's not go there....

    Most memorable moment on my bike: just got my bike a month and a half ago and got clipless pedals a couple weeks ago. Dragged down the Christmas tree by accident practicing clipping in and out of pedals in living room.

    Most fun ever had on a bike? it's all fun, and just beginning!

    Great forum here; you chicks rock, and I hope to learn a lot from you all!

    Hi mtkitchn - welcome aboard (bet you have only heard that a few times).
    Love the handle.

    Hey, Sue, welcome to the forum! I truly laughed out loud at the image of you knocking over the Christmas tree while clipping in and out!

    So cool that you're a pilot--it's an old, old dream of mine.

    Your Christmas tree adventure reminds me of a story about my Mom. When she was a little girl, her parents surprised her with her first bike, and a copy of the book Heidi. The story is she spent the entire day perched on the bike, reading the book. Fast forward 50 years...my mom's quit smoking, started biking again (on her mom's old three speed) and joined a bike club. We three "kids" got her the bike of her dreams for Christmas. And a new copy of Heidi. She's never looked back. Put over 1,500 miles on her new bike the first year.

    Best wishes in the new year! Lise

    Loved the "empty kitchen" line although did ya feel like decking him?? and a pilot......small, large, private, commercial??


    Loved the visual of the Christmas tree going over while practicing the whole clipping/unclipping thing......changes the whole meaning of "presence under the tree" yeah?

    Hey! I grew up in Colorado, and we actively boycotted Coors. I don't quite remember why, though... (Still won't drink it.)

    The guy was just joking to get a rise out of me, so I laughed. And it gave me a good screen name! This is my second career; I was an aircraft mechanic before, and you had to have thick skin to work with those guys so it takes a lot to get to me!
    Great to get to "meet" all of you! Great site!

    Introducing myself

    Real name Teresa

    Where do you live? Illinois

    Explanation of your handle: Well my name is Teresa and I have a Trek bicycle whick I love Trekn around with.....(hence the name Trekn Teresa)

    Explanation of your avatar: avatar??....you mean I could have an avatar?? How do I get one?

    Age (general or specific) 46 on March 20, 2006 Yikes!

    Occupation:

    Favorite bike:

    What's in your stable? right now a 2003Trek Navigator 300 Wheat Silver color. But, by mid Februry I should have a 2006 Trek 7.5 FX!

    Fastest speed on a road bike? where? when? don't have a road bike

    Another picture of yourself or your ride? I don't have very many pixs of myself - I hate having my pix taken, but may have a few,will have to check on that.

    What is the biggest lie you've ever told:

    Most memorable moment on my bike: My oldest daughter and I travelled to southern Illinois to the Tunnel Hill State Trail last summer. We stopped at Garden of the Gods and hiked aroud quite a bit and taking pics...well I jumped down off a rock and my sandal came off and my foot came down on a tree root, causing my toe to bleed. Anyway, we finished hiking around. The next morning we got up early and rode 50 miles,we saw several deer that just ran right down the trail out ahead of us... then later on down the trail a big ol turkey came out and ran straight down the trail and then finally took flight. It was awesome. We also saw a few little snakes and those salamander lizard things. We had a great time- but exhausting and my whole foot hurt. It wasn't until we got back to the motel when I took my shoes and socks off and saw the number I did on my foot- the whole top of the toes area was black and blue. anyway it wasn't until 2 or 3 weeks later my foot was still bothering me and still swollen..so went and had an x-ray...yes, I had a broken toe and rode 50 miles!
    (opps sorry so long)

And my winter bike is a Navigator 200 which I'm thinking about turning into a fixed gear! and only 46 - why you're just a baby hun! Welcome to the wonderful world of cycling and hope to hear more from you!

    Hello all. Just learned about this site and joined up. Here's my blurb.

    Real name: Deb.

    Where do you live? Wayland, Mass.

    Explanation of your handle: First name and initial. I have no imagination.

    Explanation of your avatar: none

    Age (general or specific): 50.

    Occupation: atmospheric scientist.

    Former occupation: Bike Mechanic. 1973-1976 in Florissant, Missouri. Best years of my life.

    Favorite bike: Frame is from PerformanceBike around 1980. Sew up rims. Campy Tipo (1974) high phlange hubs. 6 speed freewheel (Regin Oros were the best). SunTour Superbe Pro crankset (now defunct company). Campy Record derailleurs (~1965, got is used). Speedplay pedals.

    What's in your stable? My 1974 yellow Maino. We have lots of good miles together so I could never get rid of it.

    Fastest speed on a road bike? where? when? 99mph. Really. That's what the computer said (well, it was raining at the time).

    Another picture of yourself or your ride? not right now

    Most memorable moment on my bike: I've done Boston to Martha's Vineyard in a day, but that was a long time ago.

    Most fun ever had on a bike? Building wheels is fun. Getting covered with grease is fun. Riding is fun too.

    Stupidest thing ever done on a bike: Guess it's a tie between falling asleep in 1978 and breaking my collarbone in 2004.

    Hi Deb;

    Welcome to TE. I see you are from Wayland. You should join us all at Naked Fish on the 28th of January. We are going to bid farewell to a much beloved Spazz who is leaving us for the left coast.
