Name: David Moreno
I’ve been riding since: Like most everybody, I rode when I was a kid. I stopped riding as I got older, but I wish I hadn’t. I started riding again in May of 2010 – by far, one of the smartest things I’ve done.
About my bike: I wanted a bike that was comfortable, dependable, and was capable of doing whatever I wanted it to. My bike was almost all the way there, but I added a few things. Now I can do everything I want to on this bike: commuting, long rides, and light touring. I have a plethora of bags for my rack and a trailer to haul my goods. This bike is a beast.
Places I go on my bike: I commute daily to UTPA, and I’ve been places far and wide in the valley. I’ve even ventured all the way to SPI.
Why I ride: I started riding to get healthy; now I ride because it’s fun. Who knew kicking the car habit would be healthy for me, my wallet, and the environment?
