Hey.. a semi-newbie from Columbus here. Been riding with the Monday night group for 3 months or so now & commuting the 9 mile trip to work when I can wake up early enough to bother. Also been trying to teach myself some basic maintenance so I can build up a bike from parts, since I've been riding one I got free from a friend's basement. It gets me places, but needs work.
Next goal is to make it out to one of the local alleycats & not look like too much of a fool.
