Looks like I should tell you I'm in Michigan

Yo. So, I got a bike because I lost my license and car. Long story but it wasn't drinking and driving so there's that at least. I needed a way to get around and shoe leather wasn't working because I broke my ankle last year and walking hurts. Anyway, I got the bike for transportation and it turns out I like riding it! I feel good, my leg muscles are getting huge, and I'll be damned if my ankle hasn't improved too. So now that well into the activity I've got questions. Hence my presence. Carry on.

Welcome to the Forums, and to the addiction!

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?

Ahhh so it's not so bad after all, eh? Glad you found a love for cycling. We have a regional area where people meet and ride together. Check it out!

What I love about riding is how much faster you can get to places on a bike vs. walking. Welcome!
