Hi, I just joined the forum. I'm an occasional biker. I bike mainly to commute to work and to ride with my son on nearby trails. Now that my son is 8 yrs old, I look forward to going on longer rides, exploring more trails. We also started riding to his school on bikes. I find it a great bonding experience. I look forward to the exchange of valuable information on this forum and ask and give any information that might be useful for others in the forum. Great job hosting this forum.
