Beginner

Hello all,

I'm just an amateur biker. I started biking 8 months ago but when i was a little kid, i would bike every chance i get. I just wanted to join a group where others like me, a beginner who enjoy biking. This is the perfect site if I have any questions or concerns regarding biking. Thanks for your time.

Welcome to BF, dude! You got more experience than me; I'm barely at 6 months riding time. It's fun though!

Welcome. ALL of us were new to the sport at some point, after all you can't have a 50 year biking career without first having a 6 month one.

From time to time people will forget that, the same way parents forget they were once teenagers, but don't let that bother you in any way.

It might be helpful to add your location to your profile. You may get good advice from others in your area if they see you're a neighbor.

Also, we have a "Winter" forum in case you want to brave the cold, and looking for tips. (psssst...layers)
