Hello from our nation's capital!

Hi all - I just discovered this site and it looks great. TODAY I bought a Specialized Sirrus Comp (2007) for use commuting and having fun around town. I just moved here, and this seems to be a pretty bike-friendly city. Bought the bike at Bicycle Pro Shop in Georgetown...I was very pleased with the experience/service there. The bike will arrive in a week - can't wait! I haven't ridden much in about 15 years...rode from Rome to Paris long ago on a Trek eating all the nutella I could, uh, for energy : ) Never forget the Italians passing us on Grimselpass at warp speed: "Andiamo! Andiamo!" Anyway, glad to be here and looking forward to getting to know the city on my bike. Andiamo...

Hello Flying Monkey, you should enjoy that Sirrus Comp! Lots of good trails and whatnot to acquaint yourself with out there--check into the regional forums to see if there's anyone out there to help you find your way around .

Welcome to BF!
