    New in Richmond, VA

    Richmond, VA
    I am a new bike commuter, just started riding again about 4 months ago, 5 miles each way, about 3-4 days a week.
    Used to ride when I was younger, I am 50 now and I use it for exercise. Lost 20 lbs as of yesterday.
    Interested in commuting discussions, bike advocacy, and I noticed there is a car-free discussion !
    I bought a Figi Crosstown 4.0. I seems O.K. but the crank bearing needs to be tightened on a regular basis.
    Anyway,
    Hello and thanks.

    Welcome, fellow bike commuter!
    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."

    Hello sherob08, does this mean you are car free in Richmond? I think that is amazing, if you are. From what I remember of being there, it would be a difficult task.

    Good job on the weight loss, and let's see some photos of your commute .

    Welcome to BF!

    Actually not car free, my wife needs the car to travel for work, but I can get around fairly well. If you know RVA, I live in the Byrd Park area (next to the Fan) and commute to near Willow Lawn. I wouldn't want to go any farther west, the burbs are not bike friendly! In-town is a lot easier.
    Take care

    Ah, you live in the nicer part of town (certainly nicer for cycling ). No, I would not want to go further west--that's the part we went through on our way somewhere else...! Not bike friendly at all.
