Hello from Central Massachusetts

Hello everybody!

I'm not exactly new to biking, but I swore off it after my bike was stolen and I was almost run off the road while in college in Worcester, a very bike-unfriendly city. Before I went to college, I biked everywhere (within 5 miles of home). Anyway, I promised myself that I would buy a new bike as soon as I moved out of the city. I now live only 1 mile away from work, and I've been commuting by bike nearly every day.

I wouldn't say I'm a "serious" biker - I bought a fairly upright hybrid (K2 Arcadia), and only plan to ride a few miles a day. My immediate goal is 20 miles/week (10 for work, 10 for fun).

Oh yeah, and I should probably mention - my husband is Nightskyre. He introduced me to these forums.

Welcome!
As the resident of one bike-unfriendly area to another, I hope that you'll get as much out of these forums as I have. Finding a real accord in biking issues may not be as important as having a place for free discussion. I've learned a great deal from the "serious" and the "not-so-serious" here.
