    New user. Great Site!

    Hey All.
    I am psyched to find a site like this and hope to get more involved.
    I am a fairly inexperienced cyclist, but I have big plans. I am cycling from Alaska to Argentina in June 2002. You could say I have an adventurous spirit and I love traveling and experiencing different cultures. Most of my cycling experience has come in the last month and a half on my new Cannondale F400 down here in Miami. I am currently training and getting to know much more about cycling and I haven't been deterred yet. Most of the experienced cyclists I've contacted for tips and suggestions have been extremely helpful and I imagine you guys on Bike Forums are equally accomodating.
    Most of my training is done on the road and I am steadily increasing my mileage. Although about once a week I enjoy throwing on the knobbie tires and doing some trail riding for variety and a different work out.
    I'll continue my training down here in Miami until the end of January when I have to return to work in Alaska (gotta pay for all the cool accessories somehow). I'll return in May and resume my training until about mid-June when I'll fly up to Prudoe Bay to start the big trip.
    As for the big trip, I am currently going it solo, but I would welcome anyone out there to join up for parts.

    Anyway, I'm glad there is a site like this online, and hope to get lots out of it as well as contribute.

    Cheers,
    Dave

    Welcome, Dwagenheim. It definitely does sound like you've got BIG plans for this year! Most people here love people's pictures and stories from traveling, so you're going to have to post some when you do take your trip.

    Welcome to the Forums. Always glad to hear from other bikers. Your trip sounds like a real adventure. Hope you'll find a way to keep us posted when it begins. In the mean while ask lots of questions here and exchange ideas. Can't think of anyone who has undertaken such an ambitious ride, but there are many tourers that will have some useful info to share with you.
    Again, WELCOME, glad you found us.

    Suprisingly there have been quite a few!
    All of them are unique and special, but if you want to be amazed, check out this one. I was very impressed and motivated.
