Introduce yourself thread!

Hi! I am new to the board and I just wanted to introduce myself. Maybe you can all introduce yourself back so we can kind of get to know each other?
Loving the cycling. I am excited to connect with all of you. Looking for great support from you guys, but also looking to contribute to this community.

Nice meeting you all people!

Mod Edit:
If we’re gonna do this, do it right. Copy/paste/fill it in

I think this is a good thread idea, but might be worth adding where you’re at, what you ride, what else you’re interested in and how long your beard is, etc.

whether red or not, just grow a beard.
