I ride a Specialized Tricross-comp. I bought it for its durability and tolerance for a beating; it's been holding up to that beating for 6 years. :)
Why do you ride?
I ride my bike because it's a more intimate experience with the city and those that I share it with. I love this town.
Where do you ride?
I ride my bike almost exclusively in town. I take it to the bar, the store, downtown, wherever I can as long as I don't need excess STUFF with me. With that said I also enjoy touring out on the peninsula. Many a good ride out there.
What's the best thing that happened to you while riding?
Lastly, I have had the best experiences riding bikes with my friends. Whether that's touring like I mentioned earlier, or in town. Inebriated, sober, happy, sad riding bikes makes everything better. It's a fine way to get around!
