Hello from Western NC!

New to this forum and looking forward to learning more about cycling and just hanging out with cyclists. My wife and I both ride Giant Sedona “comfy bikes” to stay fit and we just enjoy being outdoors.

My bike is the Sedona DX in XL, and my wife’s bike a few years older is a Sedona standard in large. Hers will be getting a rear Topeak rack and bag this week. Rail trails, forest roads, and small town adventures is our primary riding.

Shelby is my hometown. There is a pretty active group of cyclists down there. Also a rail-trail up the road in Rutherford county I believe, and the Swamp Rabbit Trail, Greenville SC-Travelers Rest area.

Cool! Hello neighbor...I live on Moss Lake and Yes the rail trail in Rutherford County is being torn up, railroad ties removed and given new pavement. They are working on getting it finished. My wife and I look forward to riding it some day when it reopens.
