Hi To Everyone

Hi All
My name is Alan and I am from New Zealand (Kiwi) but just moved to San Francisco.
I have just brought my first road bike (Never to late to learn) and certainly enjoying the conditions here in Northern California especially the fact it does not rain as much compared to New Zealand
These forums have been a awesome read since I discovered them
Cheers

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Hello Alan, the NorCal folks are very pleasant people, and will be very happy to get you going in your new adventure . What road bike did you get?

Welcome to BF!

Yeah I am busy reading all the forums and have briefly looked at the NorCal forum,

I brought a Specialized Sequoia from my local bike shop, I had no idea the amount of different bikes to choose from and I was spending hours on the net researching etc and then I just went to my local shop and talked to them which I should have done at first, I love it after always just hacking around on a MTB, This road biking is addictive though LOL every ride seems to be longer and longer
