Hello from ABQ!

Nice to meet y'all! I've been lurking for a few weeks now reading up on folding bikes and finally made an account. I'm 28 and live in Albuquerque, NM, a very bike-y city, but I'd always dismissed cycling as too dangerous to try (plus bike theft is crazy here). Then I got diagnosed with fibromyalgia. My doctor told me to start cycling for my health, so I actually went and looked up cycling safety statistics... and I was totally shocked learning it's not that dangerous! It's almost like I should have looked that up years ago, huh...

I ordered an Origami Hawk folding bike last week to see how I like the whole folding bike thing. It should arrive today. I haven't cycled since I was 10 so I'm looking forward to falling off a bunch at first, lol.
