Canadian in Boston

Raised in Canada, France and Germany, I just moved back to Boston from Atlanta this summer (2019). I've cycled for my commute since I started college and acquired a car through marriage when I was 27. My wife and I cycled in Europe, Australia & New Zealand during an extended honeymoon in 2000-2002. Since then, I've done some summer rides with my brother:
  • STP (Seattle to Portland)
  • Gulf Islands (Canada) - highly recommended!
  • San Juan Islands
I use Time ATAC mountain bike pedals on all my bikes in order to have embedded cleats that I can walk in.

Current bicycles:
  • 2019 Fuji Touring - 64 cm - Just purchased!
  • 2010 Belleville - 64 cm - Backup bicycle - working on a broken rear hub right now
  • 1985 Raleigh Kodiak - 25" - Stored in Seattle
Past bicycles:
  • 1980s XXL Fuji Racing Bike - don't know model or exact size, but it fit me like a glove with a long reach
  • 1999 Bianchi Campione D'Italia - 63cm - frame broke right through the bottom bracket lug in 2019 - sold for parts
  • 2000 XXL Trek Hybrid - Used for aforementioned cycle touring and then sold
I love lightweight steel frames and Campagnolo hardware.

I am excited to have found these forums and have already been helped by many friendly fellow cyclists!
