ahem, I guess I'm on...

Hi all-
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!

bgbhere-
Traffic is usually pretty good. I tend go somewhat early, and then stay at work a bit late to avoid the worst of the rush-hour crowd, and the one bad intersection I cross I'll use the cross-walk for 2 sides. Every other cyclist I've seen does the same, as it seems safer than trying to make a left hand turn across 2 lanes of traffic.
Good Luck!

Welcome to the Forums. Great place to ask questions, sometimes get the correct answers, and vent if needed. We all understand and share the same passion.

Welcome Again,
Ride On!!
