Hello from North Bergen NJ

Hi everyone,
I've been riding bicycles since I was a child but in 1995 started making it a routine to keep fit and have been loving it ever since. I commute to Midtown Manhattan from North Bergen but prefer to ride in the early morning hours to avoid the traffic. Look forward to talking to everyone about their riding experiences.

Hey I'm from Edison but live outside Atlanta now. My biking started probably since I could stand.I lived for the bike use to deliver the morning star ledger everyday.Then the news tribune in the afternoon.I had up to 106 papers to deliver on sunday.Man to be there again. Then as now the bike is freedom to the world. I hung around Metuchen bike shop a lot too. Man the bike made me money got me to girls houses got me away from parents and siblings yeah bikes are awesome.

Thanks for the welcome! I have a Bianchi Campione D'Italia I bought in 1999 after years of riding a Trek mountain bike. I've considered upgrading to a lighter aluminium/carbon bike but still enjoy Bianchi's steel frame so I'm putting it off for now.

You will not find me telling you to go for an aluminium frame over your steel Bianchi! I am a fan of classic & vintage bikes--I love steel .
