    A new cyclist in Philly

    Hey everyone! I'm a 27 year old chiropractor in the Philly area. I've loved riding a bike since childhood but I would classify myself as only recently wanting to become a "cyclist." I've had a few memorable, formative moments in my span of cycling like when I realized how silly I was for riding my bike on the sidewalk or realizing, as a kid, that I could actually go places with my bike instead of simply using it for leisurely cruises.

    I'm here because I'm looking to increase my knowledge and my aptitude on a bike on everything from riding know-how to the local cycling community to bike maintenance to organized riding and whatever else I might learn.

    I ride 1 of 2 hybrid bikes, with no updates or customizations. I've had the Trek 820 for the longest but I mostly ride the Diamondback insight now that I'm in Philly and doing more dedicated road riding.
