Newbie from Georgia

Hello, all.

I'm a newbie here on Bike Forums, having just signed on. I am a relatively new returnee to bike riding. While in school I used to ride a Diamondback MTB with slick tires as a commuter in Atlanta. Grew up and got kids and stopped riding. Last March I decided to get a new bicycle and am riding a Novara (REI's store brand) Strada road bike. It's not a bad bike, but not the lightest thing on the planet. (Of course, I'm not the lightest thing on the planet at the moment, either! ) I've logged about 1500 miles on the bike since I bought it.

I'm looking forward to getting to know some of y'all better.

Check out the Atlanta/Decatur "What's Up?" thread in the Southeast regional forums for local information, rides, and general comraderie.

Welcome cnkjr from a Decatur/Atlanta bike commuter and weekend roadie.
+1 on Serendipper's suggestion about the Southeast subforum. Particularly the Atlanta/Decatur needs a LONG "What's Up" thread too! Lots of local folks talk about area rides and many of us have met up at the Melton's Tuesday night ride.

Glad you found us.
The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. - Psalm 103:8

I am a cyclist. I am not the fastest or the fittest. But I will get to where I'm going with a smile on my face.
