Greets from Ogunquit ME.

Hey, new to the road bike scene but taking to it quickly. Starting out with a stock Schwinn WorldSport (late 80's) and have built it up a bit for fun in the past couple of months. I just found a later Miyata 512 (future fixie) and pretty excited for it's arrival by a friend. Will keep you posted on that project! Welcome to any advice and tips.

Cheers!

Welcome!

We rode through Ogunquit on 2004 tour of east coast (Ikennberry generated). I went home from Portland (Greyhounded to S NJ), friend went to NSCA and back to SC-USA loop. My father used to fly family up to your airport by Cessna-152 (family vacations) in the 1970's. It was bitter-sweet to call him from Marginal-Way (sp) during his last year with prostrate cancer complications.

Life is short, live and ride!

welcome x2!!

Ogunquit, translates to "Beautiful Place by the Sea", and it surely is!

The Native Americans were sure right when they named that place!
