Hello from VA!

Hello Folks,
This seems to be a great source of info. and such. I've enjoyed riding my $30 yard sale Specialized Street Stomper mountain bike for several years now. Last week, I took the plunge and bought a new Giant OCR1 and the difference between the two is unreal, needless to say. I like to occasionally ride trails, paths, now the road. I look forward to being a part of the community here.
Paul

Welcome to BF Paul.
Nice bike.
How much time do have to spend road riding?

Thanks, I've ridden three times since I bought it. I've been riding about twice a week but hope to increase that. Temps are in the mid 50's in the daytime here. Time to get some cool weather riding clothes.
How about you, how often do you ride?

I ride 5 to 6 days a week with a group of retired folk.
Every road is flat here. Been riding about 82 miles per ride.
