noob in SF Bay Area
I'm Jan from Santa Clara, CA. I'm just back on a bike for the first time in over 10 years. I just turned 49 and with the advent of Spring weather here it got me itching to be outside and doing something physical. Dusted off my ancient un-loved Specialized bike and got it to a local bike shop. Then really liked the ride of the newer (new to me at least) upright comfort bikes. So, got a new one too. A Giant Cypress DX. I love it! Been discovering muscles that I didn't knwo I had
I've been only doing casual riding. I want to find some bike only trails in my locale. I may even ride to work if I can find a safe route. The cars around here scare the crap out of me. So far I've been staying off the major roads and will continue to do so until I get completely comfortable and confident on a bike again.
Thanks for the wonderful forums here!
