Greetings, awesome bikers!

Hello everyone!

My name is Jonathan, I'm a casual bicycler located west of Philadelphia, PA in the USA. I have a 2009 Trek Soho S that I quite enjoy, and am looking to get more into biking (as well as pick up some more bike knowledge).

Nice to meet everyone, hope to see you on the forums!

Jon

Welcome aboard! We went to Philly a few years back,
my wife and mother in law wanted to see the museum
that had weird medical displays; tumors of all sorts,
stuff that people have ingested, abnormal fetuses, etc.
Had some tasty sandwiches in a Vietnamese restaurant
and wanted to try the cheese steak sandwich at Gino's
or the other famous competitor. But it was lunchtime and
the lines for both places were long, ended up just getting
them at a pizza place nearby.

I used to live in Media PA. Kinda close. Welcome to BF. You might think about commuting.

Thanks for the responses 10 Wheels, 1nterceptor, PhotoJoe and making!

1nterceptor, those lines can be a real headache at lunchtime for sure...I try my best to avoid the rush!

making, Media is very close by! I am definitely thinking about commuting to work. My workplace is very, very close (less than a mile) from my apartment. I am going to start using my bike to get around the area, I'm less than enthused with wasting money and the environment putting around in my Mazda all the time.
