Welcome! You ever run into REM or the B52s? Do you ride a Raleigh made with Reynolds 531 steel?

Welcome to the forum. I just started mtn biking this year too, after 30 years of only road riding. I'm a real wuss on the trails, but it's still a lot of fun. I love mixing it up with the mtn and road bikes just for a change of pace!

My son is going to Athens in the fall. Will a bike be a major asset for an on-campus student? It sure was for me at the University of Maryland back in the early 1980s.

Do you have any bike-related advice for a UGA freshman?

Thanks,
Greg
