    Hello from Virginia Beach, VA! ;D

    Newbie to this biking community, and biking in general. Have been riding for about 3 months now. Recently restored/painted my first beach cruiser (pictures to come after work maybe). I enjoy mountain biking as well, and am seriously considering a road bike to commute the 7 miles to work.

    I'm guessing that you ride with "Fat Frogs"?

    Nope, I'm new to cycling so I don't even know who he/she/they are. ;( I ride with people from All About Bikes, right up there passed the hospital in Chesapeake.

    That's why I don't go to Las Vegas....

    "Fat Frogs" is bike shop in Chesapeake (also VA Beach) that organizes group rides. Here are some other group rides from the "Tidewater Bicycle Assoc"

    I rode with them occasionally last year. I haven't ridden too much this year due to work, etc and nursing a minor knee injury. There is usually a large turnout for the Sat Morning ride from the VA Beach Shop in Red Mill Commons.

    EDIT:
    Here's the route http://www.mapmyride.com/ride/united...ach/1136223049
