I registered here a couple of days back and here is something about me...
I am pretty new to cycling. What has drawn me to cycling is the desire to be car-free. I currently work about 12 miles from home and I have been commuting 2-4 days a week to work for the last month or so..I do all my shopping in my bike now.
I bought a brand new commuter bike and I am so proud of it. I live in Vancouver, BC and here it is pretty hilly. The best part of it are the downhills (except when a car is parked in bike lane at the bottom of the hill and I have to stop and merge with the traffic!). I love them! But I find it very difficult going up the hills . I am hoping that I will improve with consistent riding.
Hope to keep in touch with you all..
