    Beth from PA

    Hi. I'm Beth. I currently ride a Giant OCR 2 for longer rides and various other vintage rides also live at my house, inlcuding a late 70s/early 80s AD SLE, a Falcon, A Viscount 600EX, and several Schwinns. I got bitten recently by the cyling bug - HARD - and just want to ride!!!!

    Someone asked where I am from - I live in Franklin county, PA. I ride many of the roads here and in North Central Maryland - Ilive about 10 bike minutes from the Maryland/PA border. I'm always looking for recommendations for new places to ride - anybody got a favorite?

    Miles to go before I sleep
    Beth

    Hi Beth! Welcome, from another PA resident. If you're near Lancaster, you might want to check out the Covered Bridges Metric Century on August 19 - a lot of Bike Forums members participate in that ride. The Road Forum will have more details, or you can just look for the navy and yellow jerseys - a lot of us purchased BikeForums.net jerseys and shorts recently. Just say hi, we're a friendly bunch. Of course you'll probably enjoy the Classic and Vintage Forum as well. The "Foo" Forum is awesome too - it's my favorite part of Bike Forums. Enjoy!
    The rider in my avatar is David Etxebarria, not me.

    Welcome Beth. Sounds like you've got a ton of bikes too. I live and pedal mostly in SW PA. Ride on!

    Welcome to the forums Beth. Always nice to have another PA native aboard. Don't forget to check into the PA thread in the Northeast Regional Forum as well.
