I joined this forum because every time I google something bike-related the question has usually been posted and answered multiple times here! So at a minimum, thanks!
My wife, 14-month old daughter and I moved recently to Old Town Alexandria, VA from the New York area (Jersey City), and I was taken aback by how bike-friendly this city is. I haven't owned a bike since I was a kid, but I just got myself a black 2012 Jamis Coda Sport (from a very nice bike shop -- Wheel Nuts in OTA). Very excited about it, especially now that my daughter is old enough to ride in a bike trailer.
I hope to keep at it and put some miles on it. Will even try to commute into my work in the District when my body stops hurting!
