Greetings from Indy

Tap...tap... is this thing on?

A brand new commuter on the west side of Indy. Currently riding a 2006ish GF Capitola that a lot better bike than I am a rider. Most of my riding is pure commuting, with little (very little) recreational riding on weekends.

I got back into riding a couple of weeks ago on what was essentially a dare from a co-worker who offered not only a bike but also to ride with me (you totally rock B). Heck he even supplied the helmet. How can you turn an offer like that down? 10.5 miles later and after making sure I really hadn't had a coronary I was hooked . The days woes seem to melt away after a good ride.

Next up is to get the spouse hooked and the kids riding. Anyone know any good bike trails on the west side of Indianapolis?

We hear you. Welcome to bike Forums! You could try posting your question in the Great Lakes regional forum... might get more answers there.

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?

Awesome! I live in Fishers, and today for the first time commuted to work in Fortville.
Used to live off the north end of the eagle creek airport runway though

Good to see more Hoosiers here!

Hey IndyCommuter!!
My name is Jody aka Commutercruiser and I live in Bloomington. My family and I enjoy taking rides and I have just started doing part bike commuting and part riding the bus. It would be great to talk to someone who is a pro at commuting, perhaps to get some tips and tricks on making it safe and easier. I do hope to hear from you soon.
Keep Ridin'
