    New from DC

    I've come to bikeforums many times to search mechanical advice and other information. I decided I should finally join up.

    I'm mainly a bike commuter. I try to get to 1 or 2 bike tours in the summer. Last year I did the Tour de Vin down in central Va. Very nice. There's no better way to explore the countryside than on a bike.

    Regards,

    FWS

    Velogirl,

    I have a nice commute. It's 15 miles each way and most of it is a way from heavy traffic. I can do it in an hour, or I can take some scenic detours.

    Welcome FWS,

    if you liked the Tour de Vin, you might enjoy the Tour de Madison coming up next Saturday. It's a bit of a stretch from DC--about 75 miles, I think, but a lovely event in the country. I plan to be there:

    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.
