Don't freely give advice.

Give advice only when asked.

1. You'll be a little sore at first, happens to everyone
2. Enjoy the ride
3. You'll get lot's of advice - take it with a grain of salt and figure out what works for you.

1. Ride within your comfort level. There will always be people faster than you ... compliment them. There will always be people slower than you ... encourage them.

2. Carry two spare tubes ... one for yourself and one for someone you come upon who needs one but does not have one.

3. Ride your bike as if you were driving your car, (e.g., obey traffic signals, don't ride against traffic, stay off the sidewalk, be respectful of others)

Jeese Fredschwinn, Dudel was just posting about an enjoyable ride with his daughter and some light-hearted ideas about conversation. I was enjoying the thread as were others. Lighten up Francis.
