    Hello from South Gate, CA!

    Hello all!

    My name is TJ and I'm new to riding. My wife and I bought new bikes about a year ago to ride with my mom and her friends on the weekend. We stopped for a while and just recently I've started riding to work everyday while also using the Metro system. I came across this forum when I was looking for tips on cleaning and maintaining my bike. As you can see from my screen name, I ride a Trek 7100. It might take a little longer now to get to work but I really do enjoy riding to work and have no plans of stopping anytime soon.

    Welcome, trek7100. Congrats on making the leap to using your bike for transportation. I've written a series of article on biking as transportation that you may find useful if you are interested: http://austinbikeblog.org/?page_id=352

    Hello TJ, I semi-adopted bicycling as a means of getting home from work over ten years ago. Sometimes I ride to and back, sometimes my husband drops me off and I ride home. No matter, I still enjoy my ride!

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