Hello from NYC

Hi all,
Just joined. Hoping to cycle more now that the last snow storm of the season is behind us... right??

Anyway, I'm from NYC, I sometimes (not enough) bike to work 14 miles each way, usually bike in one day, bike back home the next day... winter's kept the bike at home, looking forward to the spring to start biking again and losing some weight!

Thinking of getting a new bike, but my standards are high and budget low, so... stuck w/ a used mountain bike for now, and a too-small but fast Centurion Dave Scott Ironman (looking to upgrade this one).

Looking forward to meeting fellow cyclists here.
