Hey all Bike Forumites, looking forward to tapping into the vast amount of expertise and knowledge of the bike forums! I have cycled since I was a young lad, but more than ever in the last 7 years. I love to ride as much as possible-- road, cross, mtn, touring, bike camping, long rides, night rides, winter rides, short cruiser rides, miniature novelty bikes, Tour De Fat, etc. I'm no mechanic or super-techi guy, but I can fix flats and do tune-ups fairly well. Luckily I am surrounded by amazing cyclists at my work and neighborhood who help me spend all of my expendable time, effort and income on this awesome hobby;). I occasionally race but not as much as I'd like to; my biggest roadblock is time, as I'm sure is most riders' issue as well. Part of the reason I joined tonight is a bike safety issue, which I'll post in the appropriate place. Ride on!
Very cool that you joined! There's a lot of people here with an amazing amount of experience and resources for you to pick our brains on - and have fun too. Personally I'm one of those wimmen riders who has been car free for many years and rides year round in NYS weather - just put studs on the mtb commuter for the first time last year and am sold. So I think you've investigated this forum pretty much - lots to offer here - definitely hit the regional portion - perhaps you can meet up with some people in your area - meeting up with other forumites is a plus - here and on any forum.
Enjoy!!! (I'm normally on commuting or foo btw)
