"Hey" from L.A.

Hello,

I'm Michael from L.A. (probably not the first one here). Road biker, commuter, tourer, bike-camper, cycling advocate and pretty much a fan of all things bike. I've been checking out the forums for a while, but finally through I'd join up to get some advice from the good folks here re. a new (to me) project-bike I picked up and hope to ride in this year's Eroica CA. It's a 1984 Bianchi Campione D'Italia... look for a post in C&V about this bike soon.

My other rides include a 2006 LeMond Chambery, a 1988 Bianchi Sport SX, and a 1981-ish mystery Bianchi road bike that I converted to a single speed.

I look forward to hanging out and learning some things. And maybe I'll see you on the roads around L.A... or at Eroica!

Cheers!
