Hello from Western Kentucky

Hello everyone. Or more appropriately, Hi Ya'll.
I'm from extreme Western Kentucky. Paducah to be exact. Rode a bike just a little bit back in the mid 70's on a Nishiki road bike. Started very casually again in July of 2012 on a Nishiki "comfort" bike. Got hooked big time! Bought a 2011 Trek/GF Kaitai and have started commuting to work. It's only 3mi each way, but I have really enjoyed it. Lost 20 lbs and feel terrific. The wife and I ride some short weekend trips (less than 20 mi.) and we hope to extend those a bit.

I feel very much the newbie and needed a place to ask some questions and try to learn some about bikes.

Welcome to Bike Forums.
Feel free to ask questions. There are lots of forums for different topics so ask away.
When you have time stop by the Southeast Regional subforum and say hello to the "locals".
And feel free to post bike pics anytime.
The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. - Psalm 103:8

welcome KY. Almost all of us around here (Indiana) are Kentuckians too.
