Hi from Wisconsin

Newbie here from the state of cheese, brats and beer. Grew up in Belgium, about 100 meters (330 feet) of the Molenberg, a very well-known climb in some of the Belgian classics (Tour de Flanders, for example).

Living in Wisconsin for the last 15 years now, and finally picking the bike up again... It's about time.

Welcome to Bike Forums. I saw about 10 of your neighbors on the Withlacoochee Trail this morning.

Welcome aboard, having someone from the best beer country, IMHO, adds a bit of class to the place, hopefully. Glad to have you here with us at BF. Ifs never too late to come back to cycling, lots of returnees here, you are in good company with us.

You bet it's the best beer country... Although many of the micro-brews and craft brews in the US are ranking right up there.
