Hello from NY!

Hi guys, I joined a few days ago after picking up a steal of a road bike at a garage sale nearby. I've ridden road bikes before, but never competitively (still not really going to) but I enjoy nature and my fiance lives in DC so I'm looking for a little extra way to get around and some good exercise. I've forgotten how much of a learning curve there is with these! I took a pretty decent spill yesterday (brakes are a lot touchier on this 2012 than my old 1990's machine ever was) but I'm not deterred and excited to be getting back into a hobby that I've always enjoyed. Going to be reading a looootttt of threads on training over the next little bit.

If anyone's done any riding out in Western NY I'd be happy to hear some suggestions on where to go!

Welcome. And watch those falls. You’ve got the one fall out of the way so no more now.
