    I just joined

    Hi, I live in the Rochester Hills, MI area and always looking for someone to ride with. I'm "old", but pretty fast for a girl already. I'm hooked and have already ridden 3,000 miles since the end of March (when I started riding seriously). Hello everyone. Also---does anyone know where I can learn more about bike maintenance near me? I can only change my tube at this point (and not very well either)

    Welcome Michigandar

    I am from Belding Michigan. I don't keep track of my mileage anymore but I have ridden a lot also.

    I can't say too much about fixing them, I just ride them. hee hee....

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    Watch that language! I'm 60 and I'm not "old".

    To learn about bike maintenance go to http://www.parktool.com/clinics_trai...toolschool.asp and scroll to the bottom of the page to find a bike shop in your area that is offering this program. I took it in Sept 2003 and learned quite a bit.
    If there's no bike shop listed, the Park Tool website is loaded with great photos and repair information so you can learn a lot on your own.
