    Southern NJ Couple - both NEW to cycling...

    Hello everyone.

    My wife and I work far, far too many hours in a week. I work primarily from home, which means sitting like a veal in front of the computer or on the phone for 12-14 hours a day... we needed a change....

    So, we went over to our local bike shop and picked up a pair of Giant Sedona bikes... and a pile of other "starter gear." Our goal is to "get out there" and see some scenery, get exercise, and remember what it is to have a life outside of work! We have had our bikes just two weeks, and are loving it. My wife is even researching where paved bike trails/routes are throughout Southern NJ and Delaware, and we are starting to plan some weekend jaunts. I can't wait.

    I look forward to speaking/typing with everyone and thank everyone in advance for all their great advice... (cause we will be asking a lot of questions!)

    Thanks all!!
    -Darren and Ellen

    We are in the Cherry Hill area, but we also own a house in Avalon. We hope to drop the bikes on the carrier and go riding there once the shoobies leave.

    I live in Phila and DC...but family lives down the shore in NJ - just outside of Ocean City. I love Avalon too. A fun ride for you down there sometime (if you don't mind Route 9 a bit) is to ride to the Cape May Zoo. From where my place is there it's about a 12 to 15 mile ride one way, you can stop, park your bike, hang out with the animals or have a picnic, then hop back on and head home.

    Not sure what the mileage would be, but just a suggestion. There's lots of other back roads down that way that are great to ride on. Miles and miles of flat!!

    have fun,
    mle
