I’m Ray Niekamp, also known as “rainycamp,” a 60-plus road bike rider from Austin, Texas. Although I’ve been biking awhile now, I learn something new all the time, so I still consider myself a newbie — hence the name of the blog. My experiences might be of interest and use to others who are getting into the fun and challenge of road biking.
If you would like to contact me directly, send an email message to rainycamp at yahoo dot com.
