Hi from DC

Hey all,
Just signed up for this forum, and just moved to DC by way of Baltimore (college-Johns Hopkins). I wasn't really into cycling at school, but I had done a bit of Mtn biking and a little road touring in HS. This summer though one of my friends came up to me and asked if I wanted to be part of a supported group that was riding from Baltimore to San Francisco to raise money for the American Cancer society. I thought what the hell, why not. Turned out to be the best decision I ever made. Took us two months to get across the country; 50 days of cycling and 8 rest days to cover around 3700 miles. Check out our website www.Hopkins4k.org Now I am pretty much hooked and try to get out as much as possible, and I am impressed with the accessability of quality road here in DC. Unfortunately not too many mountains to climb... oh well.

Welcome to BikeForums.
Riding 2000 miles? An unusual way to get back into cycling.

Nice pictures on your 4k website.
I hope you aren't the person in the Yuma police car. Stopped for speeding?

Sounds to me like you've got the bike bug. Be careful. It could change your life....
