Hi, new rider in Cumming GA

Hi, my name is Kevin and I just started riding 3 weeks ago at the urging of my Doctor. I have put in about 84 miles so far on some roads that seem flat in the car but mountainous on the bike! I am really enjoying this and hope that at some point in the future I can keep up with some of the riders that pass me! I am 42, 6' and was about 212 when I started riding...hovering in the 207-209 range the last few days. I found a gently used Schwinn Volare 14 speed at a garage sale for $50 and that is what I am currently riding. I'd like to find some people to maybe ride with but am afraid I am way too slow right now.

Hey Kevin, go and visit the regional subforums. There should be someone out there who can help you find good places and people to ride with.

Let's see photos of the Volare.

Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !
