Hello from Delaware

This looks like a great forum - there are so many people active in it. I just turned 59 and love to bike. I was really pleased to see a forum just for people over 50 as well as so many other forums tailored to special interests like biking in winter both of which I already gleaned a lot of good info from. We've got a lot of great places to ride here in Delaware and Maryland's eastern shore; good club rides too which I hope to be joining.

Hello quercus, do you have a special interest in oaks? It's a great, strong username at any rate. What kind of cycling do you do?

Welcome to BF!

Hello everyone, and thanks for the welcome. I'm in the Seaford area. I'm just getting back into cycling after a hiatus because of moving here from Baltimore. I intentionally moved about 4.5 miles away from work so I could commute, but I have to gear up some first because I've got stuff I carry back and forth from work and I don't have any panniers or other means of carrying it. I've got a B.S. in Forestry hence the username. Looking to possibly do some group rides schedule permitting.

How wonderful that you planned that! Got to love a member who plans for commuting, and who knows his/her oaks .

(a childhood memory involves being introduced to Quercus suber at the Los Gatos Library ).

I thought at first you had mis-spelled Quercus rubra - being from the east I was not familiar with Cork Oak. Did my first commute today - nine miles round trip. It felt great.

Hurrah!

Cork Oaks aren't common in California, but there were some splendid examples at the library. Still there as far as I know, too. I'll have to take a look the next time I'm down that way.
