Hello from Richmond, VA
Hey folks! I thought I'd introduce myself. Although I haven't been on a bike for 17 years, I recently decided to make my 22-mile, round-trip commute two or three times per week.
I need to get some exercise, burn off some stress, and set a good example for my daughters and thought that getting back on a bike would satisfy all three of those.
I picked up a Novara Fusion from my local REI store yesterday because it had everything I needed out of the gate. I rode her home from the store, a 6 mile ride, and I rode another 6 today. I'm hoping to work up to my commute distance within a few weeks.
Looking forward to reading lots of good advice and meeting a few like-minded commuters.
