Hi! I'm a new rider from NE Kansas. I used to be a runner, but 2 knee surgeries has put an end to that way of exercising for me. My doctor suggested "non-impact" activities such as swimming/biking/elipticals etc. I swam in college, but no longer have access to a pool. My husband has been after me to start biking since we were dating. Two kids later, I've finally decided to give it a shot to get back in shape so I can chase my girls. I've just bought my first bike since I was a teen and can't wait for it to get here! It will be a Trek 7.2FX.
