New to Commuting!!!

Hi everyone -

I'm really new to commuting and biking in general.

I'm hugely interested in utility/commuting type riding wanting to be more intentional about increasing bike useage as a means of transportation.

I've been lurking for awhile and thought i'd jump into the Discussion. If nothing else, i'll be able to provide the complete newb perspective (and *not* the know-it-all!!!).

This is a great community and i'm looking forward to participating/getting to know folks!

Welcome Frank,
Good luck with your commuting and other biking endeavours. Also in West MI, we had a good winter for using the bike. I too have made an effort to use a bike for many errands/store trips rather than drive, a bit slower but more rewarding. Having the ability to carry a good amount of stuff on the bike was very helpful for the store trips.

I'm in the Tri-Cities area (though not from here and not sure how long i'll be here). It's a beautiful place to bike!
