Greetings from Beirut - Lebanon

Hello all,

I'm a 28 year old adult that just learned to bike and I fell in love with it.

I will be taking the next step of buying my own bike and will be using it as a mean of transportation.

The roads in Lebanon are not suitable for bikes so I'm still hesitating a little bit but I'll try it nonetheless.

Have a great day!!

Thank you 10 Wheels,

We have a marina that's closed for bikers only. I will be getting used to biking there before I bike down the streets.

I think the only safe option for me is the sidewalk early in the morning but that's wrong on so many levels.

We each have different riding conditions.
I have tried sidewalks and find that they don't work for me.

Riding is about being safe and having fun with your bike.

Thanks for joining and stay in touch.
