Hello from NYC rider

Hi all... So my introduction -

I'm originally from Texas, lived in NYC for well over a decade now. I have a vintage Ross Eurosport, vintage Brooks B72 saddle and (I think) vintage Pletscher. In good enough weather, I use it as my commuter, about an 11 mile ride to and from work each weekday and errands on weekends.

I'm looking to get another bike for some longer distances, hoping to find a good vintage road bike.

I also like riding upstate a bit, in the Hudson Valley and Catskills areas (mostly because of quick accessibility to the city) so always like knowing of any good trails (road, rail, etc - not mountain biking) or routes that people know of.

Hey, how you doing in my NY accent. And now with my real typical Texas twang. Glad you made it to BF. Have fun, enjoy, and keep those pedals turning.

Howdy and welcome!

For vintage bikes try the usual suspects; Craigslist, Recycle a Bicycle, flea markets.
For routes; check in the regional section of BF. New York Cycle Club's message board
also has routes.
