Happy to be a Newbie

Because that means I am starting something. My name is Jana, I am from Alaska but now reside in the Sacramento area of Northern CA. I am taking up cycling as a result of a fabulous spin instructor at my gym being incredibly motivational. I am new at the sport in all aspects of the word and have joined this forum upon the recommendation of a friend. Some things to know about me: I am quite witty and a terrible speller. And I am very excited about taking up this sport.

Nice to have you here Jana. Many great area's of the forum to check, but don't forget the Northern California section under regional discussions, you may meet some locals.

Have fun and be safe.

Hello Jana, it sounds as if you have a possible home in Foo--they need more witty folks there .

Have you actually gotten a bike yet? What kind of riding are you looking to do?

Welcome to BF!
