    Hello From Santa Barbara

    Hi Everyone!

    I just joined the forum and thought I'd introduce myself. I started biking in May. It was bike month and thought it would be a challenge to try not to use my car for the entire month. I was successful and did everything on my mountain bike; too and form work, grocery shopping, visiting friends etc. I'd also go for rides along the beach during my lunch break at work. When September rolled around, I had only driven my car to work about 5 times (but started using my car for convenience on other trips) and logged just over 1000 miles.

    I then took the next serious step in cycling. I signed up for a metric century and bought a road bike. I've only had the road bike for 2 weeks, but I think it's fantastic.

    I look forward to many miles, reading the forums and posting comments and experiences.

    P.S. Here's a pic of my new ride

    Welcome to the forum! That's a nice bike - I have two Specialized bikes myself.

    Stop by the Southern California regional forum and say hello.

    Welcome. What a beautiful place to get to ride!
    If at first you don't succeed, Skydiving is not the sport for you!
