    Yet another bay area cyclist...

    I just got back into cycling. I biked everywhere in college, but then my grunky old college bike got too grunky so I left it behind in a move. It kinda needed a new chain and sprockets because they had worn in together and was a cheap low-end bike so the guys at a bike store actively discouraged me from doing anything with it.

    I bummed around for five years or so without biking. After realizing that my new job left me within easy biking distance to home, I started to want a new bike so I could bike to work. Finally, a few weeks ago I impulse-bought a Trek 7100 hybrid from the bike store that's within walking distance from my apartment complex.

    It's fun. I've gone on two 15-mile-rides so far and am bike-commuting 3 miles each way most days. I keep thinking about where I'm going to bike to next on my bike.. what places I can see... stuff like that.

    I'm also a hardcore photographer, so I've got pictures I take while out on a ride in a flickr set.

    Hello wirehead, we'll be expecting to see some commute photos, then, in the Commuting forum.

    Remember to visit the regional forums and check in with the Northern California folks.

    Welcome to BF!
