Love your blog! I have sent some friends of mine to it. One of our locals does a nature/travel photo blog you may like. I'll PM the link when I get it.
If you can afford it, it's a good idea to buy more bike than you think you need at the moment...especially since the reason for asking about moving is because you currently don't really need a lot of gears in Florida. But you will need gears if you ride in the Blue Ridge
. Since you said that in the past you were an avid biker, I would guess that a lower end bike would not keep you happy for long.
Check out some of the stickies in the Road Cycling forum--they are sorted according to how much your budget can stand.
Thanks for the comments about the blog! I wondered how I got a person from Florida looking at my slugs
. I would love the link, I always enjoy nature/travel photo blogs.
TRY EMPATHY & HAVE LOVE IN YOUR HEART, PERHAPS I'LL SEE YOU ON THE ROAD...
