    Hiya from Providence RI

    I've been primarily using my car to get around for years, so it should be interesting navigating the streets of Providence. I've been reading posts on the bike forum to get some ideas about which bikes are good for newbies. I test-rode the new Giant FCR-3 Monday. Nice ride, but can't decide if I want a commuter-type, or something more like my old highschool ten-speed, which, I guess, would now be called a road bike.

    Hey! I too am from providence and have been biking there for about 6 months, pretty nice because most of the time you can go faster then the cars in the city.

    Hello smurfathon, I have discovered that getting around on a bike is very different than driving a car. For one thing, there are places I can go on a bike where I can't go in a car, and vice versa. I've learned my neighbourhood much better by cycling around it than I ever did driving around in a car. The flowers are an added bonus!

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

    I hadn't thought of that! It will definitely be cool if I can go faster than the cars in Providence traffic.
