Hello From Massachusetts

Hi All,

I'm just taking advantage of the introduction thread to see who all is out there. I've always loved riding my bike, but am in no way a bicycle buff. I haven't ridden far, don't have fancy gear, and am not so good with fixing bikes.

But I'd like to learn more, and get more into this whole cycling thing. I guess I will have to, because in September I'm riding from Seattle to Los Angeles. It's something I've always wanted to do, and despite being a novice, I'm diving in. I know I'll figure much of it out along the way, but I'd like to connect with people here who have done similar tours and see what advice I can get before heading out. We'll be documenting our ride and raising money for an immigrant/refugee shelter for women if you want to take a look: www.coastingnow.blogspot.com.

Until next time.
Alice

Welcome to the forums, Alice. I haven't done a tour like that but it sounds like it's for an awesome cause. Good luck to you and search the forums, they are a great source of information.
