    nice to meet ya Mikki and loved the fastest speed line!!!
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand, strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming: "Yeah Baby! What a Ride!"

    Welcome Mikki! You're a doula, how wonderful! The world needs more doulas. (I will avoid the temptation to get up on my state-of-birth-in-America soapbox now.)

    DH worked at Ibis for 10 years and lived in Santa Rosa during that time ('84-'95).

    It's a small world, after all! Have fun here!

    I love your latest avatar! "Little" is the operative word here, Red! I think I'm about five inches taller than you are so it would be like those clown guys riding around on their tiny bikes if I rode Allez!

    Hey Wabisabi- Don't you have a century ride up there sometime next fall? You live in one of my favorite areas in California! We (Dave (my partner) and I have spent many weeks camping up there in the wonderful redwoods. We were the last people(I'm not kidding) to walk in the Headwaters before the restoration was to begin. We saw what Pacifc Lumber had done to that exquisite area and were apalled! We also have met Julia Butterfly Hill (she was here in our town supporting our efforts to keep some old oak trees from being cut down...we won, so far).

    I would LOVE to ride up there! Maybe some of us can come and ride with you later in the summer.

    You are indeed a lucky woman
    Nancy

    Real name: Susan
    Where do you live? Missouri

    Explanation of your handle: Love singletrack and a bit knuckleheadedly stubborn

    Explanation of your avatar: That's my boyo!!

    Age (general or specific) 37
    Occupation: stay at home ma

    Favorite bike: currently my supercaliber

    What's in your stable? my '91 Trek 850 Antelope, '93 Trek 930 Singletrack, '95ish Gary Fischer Supercaliber (easter egg green), '98 Raleigh R700, DH's steel Colnago, Ellsworth Truth, Canondale hardtail, 20 year old Trek roadbike, 3 kids' bikes and a partridge in a pear tree.

    Another picture of yourself or your ride? No way, dude. Ya gotta catch me 'fore you'll get a pic of me!

    What is the biggest lie you've ever told: Few and far between-too hard to keep track of the truth as it is.

    Most memorable moment on my bike: Getting Knocked out (I'm told it was about 5 minutes) and breaking my collarbone during a MTB race. Coming to, waving off help, getting back on the bike and finishing the last 2 1/2 laps of the 3 lap race as is, catching everyone who passed me while I was out and winning the race. See? Knuckleheaded.

    Most fun ever had on a bike? Bike vacations to Colorado, Utah, North Carolina, Iowa, etc.
