I've been watching this forum for a couple of months now, and thought it was time to join. I've just got back into biking in the last couple of months. I ride the rails-to-trails in our area quite often. I have been thinking about buying a new road bike, but haven't been able to make a decision yet. More on that later!

Welcome to bikeforums, gun-n-gal. Looking forward to your posts. This is a great cycling resource.

Welcome to the forum, I`m sure you will enjoy loitering here.
By rails to trails do you mean redundant railway lines that have been converted into recreation paths for cycling/walking ,living in England i`m not to sure of your American terminology, if so we have several such routes in my area .
Many of the old railway lines are now being converted by an orginisation called sustrains here in the U.K. They are doing a splendid job eventually hoping to criss-cross most of the country with the conversion of the old railway system that befell the ruthless closing down of many rural train services in the late 1950/60`s by a goverment Minister called Beeching known eversince as the Beeching axe, at least it is now providing us with some exellent fun cycling.

Yes, they are old railroad lines. I have one about 1/2 mile from my home that is not "offically" opened all of the way. Some of the bridges have been torn down, so I can do a 12 mile round trip on the section near me. I have found that it is harder than riding on the road. My legs are just about done for after 12 miles of that riding, on the road, even on my mountain bike, I'm not near as tired.
