New From Shenandoah Valley

Hey all,

Returning to biking after a long long time away. Last time I rode a ton I wasn't yet an adult, but I miss it.

Looking at a gravel bike because of where I live and where I'll ride in the Shenandoah Valley near Winchester, VA.

Looked at Jamis Renegades but they're sold out everywhere. LBS (great guy.. been here a long time) has offered to research what he could built. Looking forward to getting a bike, whenever that is, and get out riding again.

-Nick

whatever bike you end up with...enjoy the ride. The wife and I road in Shenandoah Park last spring. Beautiful area to say the least. Welcome to the forum.

Seems like a lot of us come back to cycling as adults, myself included. Good luck on getting your new bike, glad you joined us!
