Hello from middle America
Hi all. I am new to the forum and fairly new to cycling. In the last few months, I have spent an inordinate amount of time (and money) becoming engrossed in the bicycling culture. I bought a hybrid bike from a local bike store (LBS?) because I wanted to get back into bike riding. The last bike I owned was a BMX bike as a kid. I now ride my bike almost every day, even around my busy suburban neighborhood running errands. I am planning a multi-day bike trip later this summer, and I have been conditioning myself to get used to long rides. I'm already at the point were 30-40 miles is easy, but I'm still working at it.
I've really enjoyed my bike, its a pleasure to do somthing that is both fun and healthy. I've come to this forum to seek knowledge from fellow cyclists and share stories.
