Hello, just joined up looking for some cross training tips. I have been a vegan less than a year, but been a recreational and racing cyclist for almost 20 years. Looking forward to getting some great info and seeing what kind of performance results I can get with a vegan diet. :)

Welcome aboard!

A lot can be done on a vegan diet, we have a lot of good people here (including SeaSiren) that can attest to it. Sounds like a long time that you have been active. Good luck with your diet, it was a great choice. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Hey, what timing. After riding my wife's 15 year old rigid 10-speed (girly purple, of course) for the past 2 summers. I'm finally going to get a new mtn bike this week. Welcome, I'll be surfing your site soon I'm sure.

No human can call themselves liberal or radical or even a conservative advocate of fair play, if they contribute in any way to the pain and suffering of other beings.

Thanks for stopping back by here Matt. It served as a reminder for me to get your website linked up. I have a ton of sites to add to the links page, I just kept forgetting....so I'll get on it.

I hope all is well.
