Hello from Florida

Hello Everyone! My name is Tim and I am just getting into cycling for exercise and periodic commuting. I have had my bike for about a month and have put around 100 miles on it. I am enjoying it immensely.

Wow - 32 miles is quite a commute. I thought I had a long commute when I was still employed. It was only 29 miles round trip.

Have fun and stay safe.

Ron,

Thanks! I am fortunate to have a co-worker who is a cyclist. He rode in with me as my wingman for my first commute last week and has been giving lots of tips and tricks. I am looking forward to this new challenge and adventure....

Wow, that IS a long way!

Looks like you'll be doing fine since you have a riding buddy. Check out the commuting forum for more tips. And welcome to Bike Forums!
