What Up from Philly

Hey dudes, I'm new here from Philadelphia.

I've always liked biking but never got that into it, but I'm currently going through an odd quarter life crisis of sorts that has resulted in me acquiring a new [used] fixie.
Thought this would be a good place to figure things out/learn more/maybe find people to ride with or whatever. I'm completely out of shape, this should be interesting...

Hello geoGraphicFTD, yes, you should be able to get in shape, learn new stuff, and have fun at all the same place! If you can't find something of interest or amusing here, well, you just aren't trying hard enough!

Welcome to BF!

You'll probably enjoy the Singlespeed / Fixed Gear forum, and there's a lot of great people in Foo as well. Good luck!
