Hello from new rider in Central NJ

Hello from Somerset County NJ.

Getting back into riding after a little time off, mainly recreational and now looking to pursue a consistent regimen. My 15 yr old Haro Escape 8.1 was due for close to a rebuild , needs new wheels and brakes, so it was a good time to get into something new to rejuvenate the juices to ride while i slowly rebuilt it as a spare for the wife.

Just picked up the new set of wheels yesterday: 2017 Giant Roam 1 Disc.

Did some night riding with it yesterday with a buddy to stretch the cables and get acquainted. Loving the ride , though a little tough love so far on the seat Bike fits me really nicely otherwise.

Looking forward to sharing my adventures and chatting and learning from you fine folk.

Picked up tuesday



Next to its old brother. Haven't been always good to it, but sure was a good bike to me. Going to get some long due TLC soon so the wife can run alongside me.

For sure! Check out this towpath guide for the Raritan and Delaware canals. Trees are blooming, should be nicer in a few weeks

TowpathGuy's Towpath Guide: Introduction

Great if you love scenic riding by some water
