Hello from New Jersey!

Folks,

I've been lurking on the site for a while and finally decided to register a user account.

Been away from biking for a long time. As a kid, I grew up on BMX, then a nice Fuji 10-speed during college. Since then, it must have been 15 years since I've been on a bike. I picked up a basic mountain bike a few months ago to help recover my health from a couple years of self-induced torture and I can't get enough of it. I love going out for a 5 mile ride in the morning, and a 10 mile ride in the evening when I get home from work.

Looking forward to conversing with all of you!

-Don

Hey again,

Exit 7!

I ride around the Bordentown area. Lots of farmland down here and very little traffic on the backroads, so it's a joy to cruise around.

Stubbs,

I'm off 7A ...

I ride around New Egypt, Chesterfield Twp., Allentown, Cream Ridge a few times a week. The other days I head for the hills in Hunterdon County. I wouldn't mind checking out the road nearer to Bordentown.

Email me if you are looking for someone to ride with.

BTW, welcome.

Engine,

Chesterfield township? No kidding, I live there. I'm right on Route 528, within walking distance of the General Store and the Inn across the street. You've probably passed my house. Were you biking in the area during an event two weeks ago?

Hello stubbs, it looks as if the New Jersey folks have found you already, so I'll just throw in a hearty

Welcome to BF!

Another NJ newb here. Moved up here to Mt Laurel not too long ago, looking for some partners. Do 20-25 miles at 16-20mph pace in the evenings during the week, and longer on the weekends. I'll go up to a century if I have some buddies along. Lots of good routes where I live!
