    I'm an 8th grade science teacher from St. Louis, MO. I ride my bike to school as many days as I can manage, I also coach our school's rec and fit cycling program in the fall and help coach our high school's road racing team in the spring. I am currently without a mountain bike, much to my dismay, but I have a beauty on layaway!

    Aside from bikes, I absolutely love to cook (which goes hand and hand with the cycling) :D and I also love hiking, camping, swimming, canoing/kayaking, movies, knitting, blowing bubbles at my cat and chasing after/photographing excellent sunset/sunrise views.

    Also, I already posted pics of my bikes in the "let's see the bikes" thread.

    Shockingly enough St. Louis is all right. I find that cars are usually as courteous to me as I am to them... no near misses in the city so far. The county, particularly the farther west you travel can get a little hairy. Even though the roads are wider, people tend to be less tolerant of cyclists whether they're following the rules of the road or not.

    There was a time when I foolishly thought St. Louis was flat. So foolish! This was before I moved here of course... the city is fairly rolling and you can get a great climbing workout if you know where to look around here!
