Hi, new to this forum. New to biking in general. My wife and friends are into riding and I decided that I would start commuting to work on a bike. Bought an inexpensive Novara bike from REI, started riding a couple of weeks ago, to and from work. Now, all I want to do is ride. I've decided I want to get into touring. I'm already athletic, so the physical part is not such a big deal. Just looking for information about bikes, how to's, advice, wisdom and such, and my search for these things brought me here. Seems like a good resource, so I registered and here I begin.
That's it in a nutshell.
