I just joined, but I ought to have a few weeks ago because it would have helped me a lot! I've been googling for the last month about one bike thing after another, and many links were to this site.
I was researching because I trying to buy an omafiets, and knew nothing about cycling before. It arrived last week, and I am still not done reading so why not join?!
The plan is to use my new bike as a car, going ot the grocery store and all that since I live in NYC. I hope I can do this, but might not get too far because of health problems. It has been hard already, but I rode more than I expected to be able so far.
My husband (and my mother) hate the look of my bike, but I love it. They call me Mary Poppins, but it fits me so well. Besides, I always wear skirts so a skirt guard was a must! I hope the bike won't be stolen (I have BIG locks) but they tell me no one will even go near it
So, I think that is a good little summary. I really want to go browse!
