Hi! Newbie here!

Hello! I've been riding for almost a year. I ran for the past five years and wanted to ease the wear and tear on my knees, so a friend suggested cycling. I've become completely addicted.

Just wanted to get to know more about biking and meet some people along the way.

Welcome to the forum. Yes biking is a lot better on the knees than running. I know several ex-runners that now bike. To help the knees you can always shift to one gear easier and spin a little faster.
