303 Welcomes New Contributor Scott Downes!
And You May Ask Yourself, How Did I Get Here?
By Scott Downes
The first time I remember being on a bike was in the driveway of the house where I grew up, on a winding street off a county road a few miles outside of that Indiana town.

If you just don’t like him throw out words like ‘carbon fiber tampon’. That’ll do it.
