Hello from Philly

Hello all,

New member from Philly, hoping to connect with others from NE Philly or Lower Bucks that can help me learn more about road cycling. Iíve got a basic Specialized road bike, and have been out a few times (nothing in the past year, though), and canít seem to get the hang of things for some reason. Probably a mental block. lol

Anyway, looking forward to reading the forums and finding ideas that may help.

Chris

Welcome to Bike Forums, Chris! Once you get on a roll, it may become more natural to you.

Here's a regional forum that maybe of interest: https://www.bikeforums.net/northeast/

Welcome. You might also check online for local cycling clubs and bike shops that sponsor rides. There’s often rides for people just starting out.

Welcome from FL. Are you near the Schuylkill River park? I guess not if you said lower Bucks.
Best of Luck

Welcome! I'm new here too, from central Jersey. I'm looking for a job in Philly right now, so perhaps we'll run into each other on the road in the future. Cheers!
