Hello From Santa Barbara
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
