Hello from Nevada

New guy to the forum here.

I am in Reno Nevada and I just got a Raleigh M40 to use for my commute to work. Its about 37 miles but I combine it with public transportation. Looking for advice and tips to make my ride more enjoyable!

Hi Willy, my husband used to work at the Reno Post Office a number of years ago. He enjoyed living there, but left because he felt he was too close to his ex-wife .

Check out the Commuting forum for those tips...

Welcome to BF!

Hi there.. I'm over in Elko. My boyfriend grew up in Reno, we go there often, for road biking and mtn biking. We're seriously considering moving there in the very near future.. within the next couple of months. We own a bike shop here in Elko.
