'Lo everyone

Greetings, I am very happy to have found this site. A little bit about me, I am a cop that rides bikes for a living here in Georgia. Love the job and am looking for people that are a lot more knowledgeable than me as far as bikes go, and glancing over the pages here I do believe I have found that place.

Sweet! I think you'll find you're gonna get a lot of questions asked here!

Welcome to our little part of internet space....you'll learn a lot for sure...


What type of bikes does your department use for patrolling?

I am here to help where I can. But I think you may find I ask more questions than I am asked about.

We are currently running Treks. There are all about 7 years old, and I am trying desperately to get some new bikes. I took over the bike patrol about 2 years ago, or actually reformed the unit, and it has been very hard to get funds to pay for new bikes, but they do things like pay $350.00 per bike for our pretty blue lights... But they are slowly coming around as I show them what a bike squad can do.

Welcome to BF!
I live in a very small town on the north east side of Georgia (Elberton). We are in between Athens and Anderson, SC. And yes the site is a forum and it is open to everyone, but it doesn't have half the information one can find here. I am just getting it started, and am always looking for help.

BikeForums is definitely a place to learn, and most of the members here are quite helpful (even if some of them are scofflaws and run stop signs ). I think most of us here find the bike patrol officers in our respective areas to be friendly folks (I'm just south of Seattle, WA).

welcome

I'm a newbie too and I can safely say this is a mecca of information. Good Luck!
