Greetings from Staten Island

Hi! My name's Allie and I'm from Staten Island, NY. (Or "the forgotten borough of NYC.") I'm extremely new to cycling and currently in the market for a decent bike. I would like to start off riding recreationally (on trails and streets throughout the neighborhood) and eventually work my way up to commuting- and utilitarian-biking. (And when I say eventually, I mean it: maybe years from now, after I set down roots in a more bike-friendly part of the city.)

At the moment, I'm a full-time grad student, working part-time at a college library. (I'm in school to be a librarian. There is more education in front of me, too, as I will need a second Master's degree. D'oh!) Needless to say, my budget for a bike is rather low and I barely have time to eat and sleep... so it's all about baby steps.

In my bike-related research, I've often ended up here at Bike Forums... so I decided it was high time to register and make myself known. I hope to learn a lot more from all you knowledgeable folks!

See you around,
