Hi, Bike Forums!
My name is Chris, I'm a 24 year-old from the Richmond, VA area. Over the past two years I have really felt the itch to start biking my commute. It just seems like a really cool way to help stay in shape, reduce the ol' carbon footprint, learn something new, and stick it to BP for sludging up the gulf.
I'm a student with very little extra cash, so my bike is a Target-issue Schwinn Clear Creek hybrid/comfort bike.
I came to Bike Forums to look for some helpful advice on bike commuting safely, especially as it pertains to my specific situation. I'm excited to be here and look forward to becoming an active participant!
