New member from VA!

Hello! First post. Recently picked up an old road bike and needed help with restoring/converting thus my joining of the BikeForums. I also plan on buying a modern road bike in the near future to get back into shape and become a regular rider. Looking forward to meeting all of you!

Hello, Welcome to BF, glad to have you here with us. Check in to the classic and Vintage Forum for help on your Pug's restoration, they have a big followong and we have some real experts on these french beauties. The Regional Forums for Southeast will have others looking to organize rides and such of you would like that type of riding. Best of luck on the resto and on the next bike.

Bill

Have you done any group rides? I'd love to but don't know how to get started and have never rode with a group before. Also have the I don't fit in feeling with my '89 and no kit.
