First off, I'm a fairly neo-cyclist. I bought a used mtn bike a few years ago from a teenager who'd outgrown it- I'm past outgrowing things, if you know what I mean. I used it a few times, but it mainly gathered dust in the garage. Last year I started riding again, mostly on the bike paths near my house. Gradually I'm finding myself riding more (when I have time), and have started commuting to work a couple days a week.
This looks like a great place to learn more about cycling & bikes in general, and I'm looking forward to meeting you all!
