My name is Walter Lapchynski, oft referred to as wxl as on the Internets. I've been an every day commuter since the late 90s. I like just about every form of cycling imaginable but road riding is generally boring. Not that I don't like riding on the road but hammering it out to get nowhere and not even getting to enjoy the scenery is drab. Previously a bike messenger, I've since worked for Bike Friday since the Year 2000.
