I grew up in central Illinois. In August of 2007, I bought my first real “adult bike” after needing a bike to save money on gas. Since then I have had many bikes. In April of 2010, after moving out to Oregon, I got my beloved Surly Long Haul Trucker. I have put a lot of good miles on the bike. This blog is about bikes, & my life in Eugene, with help from my girlfriend.(her blog with her sister)

  3. Where in central Illinois. I grew up near Edwardsville and Collinsville. I attended Eastern Illinois University. I moved here in 1996.

  4. I read the blog every day. I commute from 29th to Springfield. You will see me in the spring with a white bucket and fishing pole. I fish before and after work when the steelhead are in.

    Loved the crate article.

    Keep up the good work
