Greetings, NorCal cyclists!
Born-again rider, here. Thor (35), of Sacramento, CA.
New owner of a Giant Roam 1. First bike that I have bought outside of a Target or Walmart.
Took it out on the Sac County Bike Trails just recently for its maiden voyage. 40 miles in just under 4 hours. Taking it easy since I haven't rode in almost 10 years. I will say that my toosh was begging for a new saddle. Got a Bontrager Commuter Gel CRZ+ saddle on the way. The stock Giant Connect just isn't doing the job.
Sticking to the trails for now until the helmet comes in. Gotta go shopping for ride apparel now. Gotta look the part, at least. =P
Once the dry season is over, will definitely hit up the trails packing hotdogs and burgers and will skewer it up on a nice spot on the American River. Will even try to bring the fishing pole and wrangle up a salmon or two. It will be interesting trying to carry a salmon back to the house on the bicycle. =P
