Hello from SW Ohio

Greetings!

My name is Sam - I recently moved to southwest Ohio. Before moving here I had not been on a bike in over two years, but since there's no public transit around here and I don't want to buy a car at the moment, I bought myself a Trek 7.2 from the LBS, and put some SPD pedals and thinner tires on it. I have been commuting to/from work (about 5 minutes) and been going for easy rides to the nearby state park (about 5 miles to get there, and a 5 mile loop around the park) on weekends.

Although I've ridden a bike on and off before, this is the first time I've done so regularly, and not just for 'fun'.

Of course, all these new experiences have raised a bundle of questions, and my Google searches would usually bring up a BikeForums thread as the first hit. So, it looks like this is the place to be!

Sam

There's a lot of good places to ride here.
