hello from philly
Hi, from the mainline.
I've ridden bikes my whole life and have always ridden fair distances and commuted on my cannondale hybrid, which I also use for trail, single track, and light mountain riding (no technical downhill stuff).
Recently, though, a friend let me borrow his road bike to do a 150 mile charity ride and I've gotten really into it. Now I'm looking to get a touring bike to use for commuting and loaded touring. The same friend pointed me to this forum as a good place to pick up info.
So thanks for all the helpful threads and good advice. I'll be reading a lot of it.
"Yo, how YOU doin'?" Greetings from the Philly 'burbs (Montco). That was a pretty good game tonight, eh? Three more games just like that, please!
Was the charity ride the MS150 City to Shore ride?
You might enjoy the Regional / Northeast, Charity Rides, Road Riding, Commuting, and Touring forums. In addition, a lot of members from Bike Forums often meet at the Lancaster Bicycle Club's Covered Bridges Metric Century every August. It's a great chance to meet the people behind the user names, and to put faces with names. Maybe we'll see you there next year? Welcome to the Forums, and I hope you enjoy your time here.
Meanwhile, go Phillies!
Welcome to Bike Forums. Check out the Touring forum for more information on different types of touring bikes.
Yeah, man, the MS150 city to shore. It was a lot of fun and got me hooked on road riding. It's a lot more fun than I imagined. Thanks for the tips on other rides to join.
