Hello from new tourer in Atlanta

Hi, I'm a student in Atlanta, I ride an old univega fixie around town and I recently got a Novara Randonee which I am setting up for a cross country tour, summer 2007.

I'm mostly looking for stories, advice on touring and fixed gear bikes and generally immersing myself in cycling.

Hello ratto1101, there's plenty of stories here in the forum, it just depends what you are looking for! If you'd like to throw in some fun, there's Foo.

You might also want to check in with the Southeast regional forum--there are quite a few members from Atlanta and surrounds, including RonH, one of our moderators. He's got some nice photos here of Georgia Rides to the Capitol.

Welcome to BF!

Hi ratto and welcome.
Stop by the Southeast subforum and say hello. Lots of Atl and N Georgia folks here.

hi!
check out the touring section of this site as well. got your route planned yet? are you experienced tourer? going self contained or supported tour?
have a great coast to coast tour (check AdventureCycling.org for advice as well).
"welcome" !
ps: i have family in decator, athens, and over to elberton areas. it's been since 1978 since i've been down there. sure there are changes, but how is road bicycling there now?
